The personnel slowly moved towards the direction of the gang leaders and thereafter approach the officer manning the imposing officer desk. How was the former legislator during his imprisonment? Condoning rape for political convenience, Roxas had 2 years in the Arroyo Cabinet while Jalosjos -- convicted in a nationally-televised, high-profile case -- was languishing in jail. It was hidden from them until someone cracked it , as usual, for a significant whislteblower fee. Several prison directors would come and go, every elected head of government had their own appointees designated to lead prison. Since he was reelected to his position, he argued that he should be allowed to attend the legislative sessions and committee hearings, because his confinement was depriving his constituents of their voice in Congress.
The cell block was jam-packed but there was a spacious area for him, as owner. The first few days were somehow blissful and away from weeks of daily criticism and embarrassing disclosure on his personal life. We already saw it when. The conditional pardon granted to former sergeant Pablo Martinez, who was convicted for his role in the assassination of opposition leader Ninoy Aquino, is similarly controversialit brings us farther away from, rather than closer to, a resolution of the mystery surrounding the assassination, a true turning point in our history. Good behavior from the third to fifth year entitles a prisoner to a reduction of eight days for every month. Who exactly is Romeo Jalosjos?

Let me take you on those days when said inmate was serving time. He would hire private contractors to cement the pathway leading to his dormitory. Romeo Jalosjos, is back in his throne after languishing in jail for over a decade. Once a person is proven guilty, a punishment is carried out based on the crime. His case became a media staple of almost a year but his incarceration—the period, around 10 years, he served his time in prison—that captured the imagination of the public. There was even a prison director who would require all his senior staff I was one of them but I declined it to spend a grand vacation in the resort of Jalosjos at Zamboanga. He would build a sports auditorium and a tournament size tennis court.
That is, Roxas was still the Liberal Party's presidential contender. He would even redesign the shanty-looking accessories in front of the dormitory. In September 2008 he began occupying the house. It held that Jalosjos did not satisfy the residency requirement since, by continuing to hold the position of Mayor of Tampilisan, Zamboanga Del Norte, he should be deemed not to have transferred his residence from that place toBarangayVeteransVillagein Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay. This account will handle all community functions for PinoyExchange. What made him apart is not how the facility intended it to be, it is the inmates who were around him that made him exceptional.

Its only a matter of time. That decision was like putting lit matches in the hands of a known pyromaniac. At that time, not my time though, gang leaders were reckoned by prison administration since they hold the peace in the prison camp. And true enough, Jalosjos was indeed staying in one cell, good for 35, but here he was, occupying it all alone and , well, with some gofers standing by the door, he was living grandly! They are all marked by the same attitude to law: What is legal is what we can get away with. During his time in jail, he was able to build a tennis court, a playground, a basketball court, and a bakery in the maximum security area.
But thats like saying that a box of matches in the hands of an arsonist is the real cause of a given fire. Scandal broke out and the National Penitentiary was again the staple in tabloid. And everytime there were new appointees, the politician in Jalosjos would always be around in a supporting medium. The immunity from arrest or detention of Senators and members of the House of Representativesarises from a provision of the Constitution.

The accused-appellant filed a motion asking that he be allowed tofully discharge the duties of a congressman, including attendance at legislative sessions and committee meetings despite his having been convicted in the first instance ofa non-bailable offense on the basis of popular sovereignty and the need for his constituents to be represented.
