This Inquirer report yesterday elicited laughter and jeers from many people, even from non-supporters of Sen. Grace Poe.
From that report, it says,
“A foundling by definition is stateless,” Bautista said.
Election lawyer Romulo Macalintal has said Poe is considered a Filipino and a natural-born citizen under the United Nations Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness.
But Bautista said that the Philippines was not a signatory to the UN convention.
“There are only acts of compliance by the Philippine government to the convention but we are not a signatory so it never cured the statelessness of a foundling,” Bautista said.
At least 10 of my fb friends shared that story ahead of me and made these comments in their respective fb walls:
1. The PDEA should be alerted on the strong stuff these UNA guys are having. Oh boy. -- Gus.
Nothing enhances the credentials of a self proclaimed peace activist and human rights lawyer more than going after a women because she's adopted. Is this Bautista guy as much of a fraud in all his dealings, as he is with this issue?
I think persons with some attention deficit problem would utter such type of attacks on the lady Senator. It was not her fault that she was simply adopted, not her fault that her biological parents are not found or never bothered to come out until now. The main issue in PH Elections 2016 is the capability and integrity of politicians aspiring to become the next President of the Philippines just 11 months from now. JV Bautista's concerns are toilet politics, low-life demolition and personal attacks.
Lastly, I saw anew "theory" re JVBautista's inhaler when he uttered those remarks, a joke of course:
