Senator Koko Pimentel on November 14 said Ilocos Norte 2nd District Representative Imelda Marcos cannot use old age as an excuse to escape imprisonment.
Pimentel said the Ilocos Norte politiko is no longer a child.
“Age cannot be used as an escape from criminal liability unless you are a child. Sa bata lang po ‘yun, ‘di puwede sa matanda unless may insanity defense,” he said.
Pimentel said Marcos should go to jail once a court orders it.
“If that is ordered with finality by a court, be it Sandiganbayan or Supreme Court, then it should be enforced,” he added.
