MANILA, Philippines—Presidential aspirant Gilberto “Gibo” Teodoro Jr. on Thursday defended the government’s alleged kid’s glove treatment of the Ampatuans who are allegedly behind the gruesome massacre of at least 57 people in Maguindanao.

In a press briefing held at Serrano Elementary School in Valenzuela, Teodoro said that while the public wants a swift resolution to the case, security authorities must be allowed do their job.

When asked if he agrees with how President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is dealing with the Ampatuan clan, known avid supporters of the administration who delivered landslide votes to administration candidates in 2004 and 2007 elections, Teodoro did not answer directly but said that the public should understand the situation.

“We have no choice but to let investigating authorities do their job. Micromanaging may lead to mistakes,” Teodoro said.

    ah. eh. um. i understand the “we have to follow due process”-part. kaso kasi… yung justice system natin, mabagal talaga in nature. this is what the people don’t want to happen again. kaya kelangan i-push ng i-push. i hope he understands that.

    but then again, tama nga na delikado kung ang ilalabas lang na resulta ng
    imbestigasyon ay kung ano yung gusto makita ng taongbayan. hindi na justice yun.

    What can I say, I think it is very unfair to accuse Teodoro of being so lenient with the Ampatuans, he has acted swiftly and openly spoke of his outrage towards those who had committed this hineous crime, he expelled the Ampatuans from the Lakas Party, what else can one do but to leave it to the criminal justice system to operate freely in the pursuit of justice.
    I believe he is a man of principle and dignity and will not tolerate any misbehaviour inside and outside his party. I admire his stance on many issues and I honestly feel that he has all the qualities of a good leader.

    What can one say about this matter, it is unfair to accuse Teodoro of leniency towards the Ampatuans, he has acted swiftly and spoke openly of his outrage to those who had committed this hineous crime, he expelled the Ampatuans from the Lakas Party without any hesitation, what else can he do but to leave it to the Criminal Justice System to operate freely in the pursuit of justice.
    I believe he is a man of principle and dignity and will not tolerate any misbehaviour inside and outside his party. I admire his stance on many issues and I honestly feel that he has all the qualities of a good leader.
