Chinese delicadeza and justice

Here is an example of delicadeza, in the Filipino sense of the word: Yesterday, former Taiwan president Chen Shui-bian’s son, Chen Chih-chung, daughter-in-law, Huang Jui-ching, and brother-in-law, Wu Ching-mao, pleaded guilty to charges of money laundering.They were obviously full of remorse.

…and here is an example of proper justice: Today, culprits behind the China melamine scandal were sentenced at the Intermediate People’s Court in Shijiazhuang, capital of northern Hebei Province. Sanlu ex-chairwoman, Tian Wenhua, was sentenced to life imprisonment for producing or selling fake or substandard products. Two other defendants were given the death penalty! Other persons involved in the case were also slapped with jail terms.

A similar sense of delicadeza is absent in the Philippines. Swift justice is also a myth in our country. Erap and his plunder case for example took about 6 years to resolve. He was found guilty but until now he claims he is innocent and that he was just a victim of political manipulation. My blood boils whenever I hear him with his blah blahs. Why was he given executive pardon in the first place?.. another story of lack of delicadeza huh?

I really envy the Chinese!
