Romeo Jalosjos! Child Rapist, Humihingi ng Pardon Para Makatakbo Sa 2019 Elections!


Former child rapist and Zamboanga del Norte Representative Romeo Jalosjos, who was convicted of raping an 11-year-old girl, seeks absolute pardon so he can run for office in the 2019 elections.

In 2001, the Supreme Court affirmed the decision of the Makati Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 62 when they found Jalosjos guilty of two counts of statutory rape and six counts of acts of lasciviousness.

In 2007, then-President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo commuted the sentence to 16 years, three months, and three days.

In 2009, the child rapist was freed after staying in jail for a measly 13 years.

Just 4 years ago, he was disqualified by the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) when he tried to run for the mayoral office in Zambioanga City, a decision later upheld by the Supreme Court.

Fast forward to today: Romeo Jalosjos seeks absolute pardon from the President so he could run for office once again.

Just yesterday, his name was included in a public notice of the Board of Pardons and Parole (BPP), as one of the 36 convicts seeking for executive clemency for this year.
