Erap reminds Noynoy on Cory pardons



By Jason Faustino
03/23/2010

Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino (PMP) standard bearer former President Joseph Estrada reminded Liberal Party presidential bet Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III that his mother, the late former President Corazon Aquino, freed Communist Party of the Philippines founder Jose Maria Sison and other rebel leaders in reference to a statement of Aquino that he was not in favor of the pardon President Arroyo gave Estrada after he was convicted of plunder.

In a short rebuttal to the alleged  remark of Aquino, Estrada said former President Aquino also issued pardons to Sison, Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) chairman Nur Misuari and New People’s Army (NPA) leader Bernabe Buscayno or Kumander Dante during her term.

Estrada then criticized the prevailing problem with communist rebels in the country. MORE
