Watchdog laments exoneration of Ping

Manila, Philippines – An anti-crime watchdog group yesterday expressed dismay over the Supreme Court’s (SC)’s final ruling that absolved Senator Panfilo Lacson from the much publicized Dacer-Corbito double murder case and declared former Police Supt. Cesar Mancao II to be an “incredible and unworthy witness.

“ Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC) founding chairman and president Dante Jimenez deplored the recent concurrence of the high court with the Court of Appeals (CA) decision that dismissed the criminal charges filed against Lacson and quashed his arrest warrant.

Aside from the dismissal of the motion for reconsideration (MR) filed by the daughters of slain publicist Salvador “Bubby“ Dacer, Jimenez pointed out that SC also affirmed the CA’s ruling that Mancao’s statements is not worthy of belief. (Leonard D. Postrado)
