Erap Vs. Lim word war extended to UP Campus(w/ video)

Written By Austin Sean on Wednesday, 13 March 2013 | 3/13/2013

After facing-off in in a debate on Umagang kay Ganda on Tuesday, March 12, 2013, re-electionist Alfredo Lim and former President Joseph Estrada who are both running for Manila City Mayor in the 2013 elections will meet once again at the Univesity of the Philippines Manila.

The former president stressed that while the Department of Tourism is promoting the slogan “It’s more fun in the Philippines,” the City of Manila has a slogan in promoting criminality and poverty.

“The [DOT] slogan is to attract more tourist in the Philippines, but in Manila there’s more fun too . . . kidnafun, carnafun, holdafun at kahirafun,” Estrada said, in reference to the alleged rise in kidnapping, carnapping, holdups and poverty.

Lim fended off Estrada’s tirades by stating that he clarified the issue with Manila Police District Chief Alex Gutierrez, who reported that there were only eight cases of car theft in Manila. All of these cases involved non-payment of mortgaged motorcycles.

He then launched on an offensive by bringing up Estrada’s conviction of plunder.

He said that if Estrada was innocent of the charges as he claims, he should have not accepted the pardon given by then President and now Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

“”Bakit hindi ka na-acquit and was sentenced with plunder. If you are innocent bakit ka nagmaka-awa. You will not accept the pardon, dapat umapela ka sa Supreme Court [Why were you not acquitted and in fact sentenced for plunder? If you are innocent, why beg? You should have appealed your case before the Supreme Court],” Lim told Estrada.

Estrada defended himself, saying his case was a class of its own because the justices who convicted him were handpicked by the High Court.

He cited the case of the late Senator Benigno Aquino Jr. who was convicted by the Military Commission and was sentenced to death. All of the generals who convicted him were also handpicked, similar to his case.
The debate and public forum aims to find out each candidate's health agenda and plans on other persistent issues of the country's capital.
