THE Liberal Party’s (LP) Noy-Mar presidential and vice presidential tandem vowed Wednesday that corruption cases will be filed on the first week if they'll win the top seats.

Senator Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III reiterated his "zero tolerance for corruption" platform, pledging he'll drag corrupt officials to vindication.

"Mga first week or second week meron na kaming naaresto. Sa simula baka kaunti pa ho sila pero by the end of the first month, there'll definitely be cases," Aquino said in a press conference at Bistro Rosario at F. Torres St.

"Kung napapansin niyo, para i-adjudicate ang isang corruption case, anim na taon, ang conviction rate is 18 percent. Ang aming katiyakan ay kung may nagawa kang mali, may kaukulang kaparusahan. Kakausapin namin yung judicial body na wag naman sanang six years bako magkaroon ng desisyong concrete," Aquino said.

Vice presidentiable Senator Manuel "Mar" Roxas, meanwhile, said the current system has separate judicial systems for the rich and the poor.

Roxas specifically used as an example Celso de los Angeles, who was implicated in masterminding the multibillion Legacy fund scam.

Roxas condemned De los Angeles' transfer to Unit 1703 of the Cathedral Heights Complex situated at the compound of St. Luke’s Hospital in Quezon City. "Ito pa ay isang napakasariwang halimbawa kung bakit nawawalan ng tiwala ang tao sa gobyerno."

"Papanong hindi kung sa sistema natin magkahiwalay ang hustisya para sa mayayaman, malalakas, at malapit sa posisyon sa hustisya para sa mga mahihirap at walang kakilala," Roxas said.

On the other hand, senatoriable Yasmin Busran-Lao said "if the leader does not follow the rules set by her government, then those below will do likewise."

Aquino and Roxas were in Davao City Wednesday to promote the Mindanaon senatorial candidates of the LP slate.

Busran-Lao is the only Muslim woman who is now running for a senatorial seat.

After the conference, the LP candidates visited Bankerohan Public Market and then drove to Digos City. (JCZ)
