Alfre d Dalizon 1 Chiz to SC: Don t be onion-skinned by Marlon Purificacion Tuesday, 26 October 2010 18:24 SENATOR Chiz Escudero yesterday urged Supreme Court members to brace for critici sms. Escudero said the impasse between the High Magistrate and University of the Phil ippines Faculty of Law does not augur well for our freedom of expression. As a former member of the UP Law Faculty, it is my strong belief that any governm ent official including members of the judiciary should not be thinned-skin about dissenting p ublic opinion which is permitted in a democratic country like ours, he said. The senator said SC members, as all other government officials, are always under public visibility, thus criticisms such as that from the UP Law faculty should be taken constructively, especially given the fact that even our Supreme Court had the matter already inv estigated. Freedom of expression is an inalienable part of a democratic system. Anyone for t hat matter is not precluded from voicing out his opinion, be it either contrary or supportive of the prevailing facts, he added. He said that this is especially true in the legal profession, where lawyers are but advocates for or against a particular judicial controversy over which the SC has the final say . In fact, the SC, as a collegial body, in the performance of its constitutional du ty to resolve such controversies even reverses itself at times in the light of significant developm ents, he added. 1 / 1 Dad gets 14,400 yrs for raping daughter daily by Hector Lawas Thursday, 23 September 2010 19:47

HE raped his 14-year-old daughter 360 times in 18 months. For that, Carlos Henry Troy Donato, Sr., a tricycle driver, was meted out death by a Calamba court for 360 counts of rape. The Court of Appeals however reduced the penalty to reclusion perpetua or a maxi mum of 40 years in prison for each count of rape or a total of 14,400 years in prison. The Appellate Court described the case as the worst case record of sexual abuse o f a minor in the annals of our jurisprudence. Donato s wife left for Hong Kong to work, leaving their three children under his c are. They lived in a small rented unit in a subdivision in Los Baos, Laguna. Every day for 18 months, the father raped the victim. He only spared her during her monthly period and birthd ay. On May 7, 2002, the victim and her two siblings went to Pangasinan to visit thei r maternal grandparent. On the last day of their vacation, she informed her aunt of her fat her s incestuous attacks. The shocking news reached her mother who arrived a week later and sought the ass istance of the Philippine National Police in Camp Crame. After the victim was examined, she was made to undergo psychological counseling. A medico-legal officer found lacerations in her hymen, indicating penetration. The CA gave full weight and credence to the testimony of the victim, now 22 year s old. The girl s testimony rings true. It is corroborated by a credible witness and suppo rted by incontestable evidence of the condition of her genitalia, the CA said. It junked Donato s claim that it would be physically impossible for him to engage in nightly sexual bouts with his daughter as he was on the road all day long. A rape victim s actions are most often overwhelmed by fear and emotion rather than by cool logic or reflection, the CA said. It is on the fear springing from the initial rap e that the perpetrator is able to create a climate of psychological terror numbing his vict im to submissiveness and silence. Incestuous rape magnifies the terror, because the perpetrator is a person normall y expected to give solace and protection to the victim, and his proximity serves to heighten h er helplessness and lack of direction, it added. 1 De Lima urged: Probe trumped-up charges by Hector Lawas Tuesday, 26 October 2010 18:41 A FARMER S group yesterday urged Justice Secretary Leila de Lima to probe the want on practice of filing trumped up charges against farmer-leaders involved in agraria n disputes with their landlords.

We are writing you this letter of concern/position paper to bring to your attenti on the sad plight of our members in Negros Island whose collective aspiration for genuine land ref orm has been criminalized by powerful landlords and local authorities in vain attempt to deny their land rights and basic right for jobs, food and justice, the group said. 1 / 1 Ecija trader escapes ambush try; gunman falls by Steve A.
