What the Senate is doing could guarantee political asylum for Bolante

by Philippine Reader (no login)

Don't look now but it seems a few pro-administration senators are working hard to tell the US immigration authorities that Joc Joc Bolante faces possbile political persecution and legal harrassment if he is extradited back to the Philippines.

Preparing a long list of "crimes" after the suspect has left the country leaves no doubt as to the credibility and sincerity of these charges. This would certainly make anyone subjected to this treatment a political refugee and thus be a qualifying candidate for political asylum.

Good job!
