Just wanted to add my comments. I listened to the hearing earlier and it just highlighted how convuluted and twisted the morals are of our so called “State Prosecutor” John Resado. How can anyone confess to knowing about a bribery attempt then not report it to anyone simply because the one who attempted to bribe him was or continues to be his “close” friend. And then later to provide his decision to “dismiss” the case because of a lack of evidence - evidence that is already suspect of being tampered with…and all the while John Resado maintains that he made his “clear judgement” just based on all the facts of the case. Shame on you john resado….for covering up the bribery attempt because atty lazaro is your self-confessed friend…and then later on to deny that the money in your bank account is from a money-lending business that your family has been maintaining…a business that you later confessed to congressmen that is not registered and that you have not declared on your income tax returns….
It’s a shame that this is yet another case for people to shrug at and say, “only in the philippines…”
Yes, so sad that only in the Philippines that a state prosecutor can think that keeping his friendship and avoiding conflict has a higher priority than upholding the law…that John Resado thinks that it was ok for him to maintain funds from an unlicensed and an untaxed source of income as long as the funds were not from a bribery attempt…
