Napatawad ko na kayo, maraming salamat sa pagtutuwid.

Ito ang tugon ni Senador Panfilo Lacson sa paghingi ng paumanhin ng pahayagang Philippine Daily Inquirer sa pagsusulat ng maling balita tungkol sa kanya halos 20 taon na ang nakakalipas.

“Time heals, forgives. Thank you, Philippine Daily Inquirer for your humility and courage to admit I am not the person you said I was. Getting back my honor and dignity matters a lot to me. It is with equal humility that I accept your apology,” banggit ni Lacson sa kanyang Twitter account.

It’s long in coming. Nevertheless, I still appreciate his gesture of humility and courage in doing so. Needless to say, I accept his apology.

Yes, I was informed that ex-ISAFP Chief Victor Corpus has finally admitted publicly that he had unjustly wronged me by being taken for a ride by a “fraud,” obviously referring to Angelo “Ador” Mawanay, who himself had retracted 13 years earlier, even pointing to those who were responsible in suborning him to commit perjury against me.

In the spirit of fairness and balanced reporting, I think it is but proper and decent for those who relied heavily on their statements, as the central characters responsible for incessantly maligning my reputation to follow suit, or at least make amends, not pecuniarily, but simply to restore the moral damage they have done to my dignity and honor.
