>After almost two decades, Hubert Webb, the son of a former senator, and six other persons were given an acquittal in the Vizconde massacre case on Tuesday. The Philippine Supreme Court reversed two lower courts’ findings that found Webb and eight others guilty of killing three members of the Vizconde family – Carmela Vizconde, 18, her mother, Estrellita, 47, and sister, Jennifer, 7 – on June 30, 1991.

Aside from Webb, those acquitted were:
# Antonio Lejano;
# Michael Gatchalian;
# Miguel Rodriguez;
# Hospicio Fernandez;
# Peter Estrada, and
# former policeman Gerardo Biong.

The justices who voted in favor of the acquittal were:
# Associate Justices Roberto Abad;
# Conchita Carpio-Morales;
# Diosdado Peralta;
# Lucas Bersamin;
# Jose Perez, and
# Ma. Lourdes Sereno.

Those who dissented were:
# Chief Justice Renato Corona;
# Associate Justices Martin Villarama;
# Teresita Leonardo-De Castro, and
# Arturo Brion.

Those who took no part in the deliberations were:
# Associate Justices Antonio Carpio;
# Mariano del Castillo;
# Eduardo Nachura, and
# Presbitero Velasco
