The Start of Erap’s End

DECEMBER 7, 2000 – THIS date marked the beginning of the nightmares in former Pres. Joseph Estrada’s reign. Bearing the 13th place in the presidency of the Philippine Republic, he was the first ever leader of the country who faced an impeachment trial. It was never really a lucky term for him.

Erap's Dalmatians

I was just in third year high school when former President Estrada set the record. That time, I kept on chanting to myself and memorizing by heart the charges filed against him. Thinking about it now, it’s funny that my motivation in studying those wasn’t really earning good grades nor to be “in” in the daily talk of the town. I did all those actually, for the love of impressing my crush.

I still can recall them even now. Yup, like the way I used to recite and sing them to myself.

Bribery. Graft. Culpable violations of the Constitution, Betrayal of Public Trust.

Along with those charges, I also managed to include some names in my mantra.

Presiding Judge, Judge Hilario Davide Jr. Defense Team: Atty. Andres Narvasa,  Atty. Estelito Mendoza,  Atty. Raul Daza.

Well, after high school, I stopped being a fanatic on Erap’s tragic fate. After all, memorizing his charges didn’t help me with my crush.

P.S. Anyway, last time I heard, he’s still alive and ok. (I mean, Erap) 🙂
