Robin Padilla thankful over executive clemency from Pres. Duterte

By Chandral Selim


"He's suffered enough, I think."

These were the words of President Rodrigo Duterte as quoted by PUSH, referring to Robin Padilla, who he granted executive clemency yesterday, November 15.

"I just granted the pardon in favor of Robin Padilla kasi 'yung original pardon niya hindi sinali 'yung full restoration of political and civil rights," President Duterte explained. "Therefore he could not travel, could not get a permit to possess a gun again."

The President reasoned, "Alam mo 'yung crime na 'yan walang nasaktan. 'Yung mahuli sila, wala silang sinaksakan, wala silang binaril."

In 1994, Robin was found guilty of illegal possession of firearms. Four years later, former President Fidel Ramos granted him pardon sans full restoration of his rights.

Robin has been denied a US visa multiple times since then. However, now that the actor has been granted executive clemency, it would be easier for him to be with his wife Mariel Rodriguez, who gave birth to their daughter in the US last November 14.
