Featured-Image-Journal-OnlineSENATOR Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. joined the nation in urging the government to speed up the delivery of justice so the guilty are sentenced and the families of the victims are given some solace even if the lives of their loved ones can never be brought back.

This was in connection with the anniversary of Maguindanao Massacre where 58 persons were killed including 32 mediamen.

The administration should not be gloating at their success, questionable in its legality, in taking GMA to task in facing the charges against her, even if making her answerable to the charges is what we all want. A real victory of justice will be celebrated by all when the Ampatuan Massacre cases are finally resolved by the courts,” he said.

The senator further said the government should use the same amount -- if not more -- of energy, focus, and determination that they used in nailing GMA, in speeding up the cases of the Ampatuan massacre and give cause for the entire country.

This is to extol the delivery of justice for the families of the victims and bring the guilty to jail to pay for this shameful and horrendous crime.
