pension forfeited

The pension of Col Russell Williams

The Canadian courts are now deciding on whether to allow the convicted colonel to draw his pension from the government.

Personally I believe he is entitled to receive this pension.

The money is his. The said pension had been dutifully contributed to, from legally earned wages, and should be rightfully his. This pension should be treated like his savings.

Incidentally, this ruling should also apply to Filipinos who have contributed to a pension fund. Thsy should get their money back even though how small the amount of the pension and how small the amount that was contributed to the fund. It is their money, not the SSS nor the GSIS. There should be no such thing as money forfeited because of a crime committed, as long as the money had been legally earned.

Right now, a small amount contributed to the SSS is forfeited even if there is also some amounts contributed to the GSIS by the same person. Both contributions are forfeited.

This is highway robbery!

ALSO, REMEMBER that the forfeiture of his retirement pension is the single cause of why Captain Mendoza went bananas to hold hostage a tourist bus.
