Erap: I have forgiven my enemies

by abs-cbnNEWS.com

MANILA, Philippines – More than 3,000 policemen were deployed on April 25, 2001 to arrest ousted President Joseph Estrada for plunder.

He was placed under house arrest for 6 1/2 years at his estate in Tanay, Rizal, and was convicted in 2007. He was eventually pardoned by then-President Gloria Arroyo. Ten years after his arrest, Estrada said he has forgiven those who went after him.

“Doon ko naranasan ang pagiging ispiritwal, kaya nga kahit wala akong kasalanan, pinatawad ko na lahat sila,” he said.

Estrada, however, maintained that he was a victim of politics. He claimed that Arroyo wanted him jailed so her administration’s legitimacy would not be questioned.

Estrada added that this was also the reason why Arroyo, through former Justice Secretary Hernando Perez, offered to let him go into exile.

“I refused. They wanted to get rid of me para sa kanilang legitimacy,” he said.

Estrada also criticized Arroyo for the anomalies during her presidency. “Nandiyan ang ZTE, fertilizer fund scam. Dinaya pa niya ang best friend ko si FPJ,” he said.
