After what he did to our country Erap deserves to spend the rest of his life in jail. I'm really glad to see that there's still some justoce left in this countrt

yes. I also agree with Anonymous 10:39pm

but, as respect to the former president, I think they should let him stay at his rest house in Tanay

On Erap's life imprisonment, do you think Erap should be given respect after what he has done to our country? Ubos na ang pera sa kaban ng bayan dahil sa mga Marcos, inubos pa niya ang konting barya na dapat sana ay para sa taong bayan!!! Nagmamalasakit siya sa taong bayan, ano ang ginawa niya? Ang baryang natitira ay sinimot pa niya at pati na ang dapat na kinita pa sa ibang government projects ay inubos niya, ng pamilya niya at ang mga kabit niya!!! Does this man deserve to be respected??? He should go to jail... in Muntinlupa that is! He is more a criminal than those who killed only one person. He killed thousands of hungry Filipinos!

I just hope the prosecutor's will do their best to recover the remaining 75% of the P4.1 billion in question.
