Why did Juan Ponce Enrile turn against President Marcos? What does he know about the assassination of Benigno ‘Ninoy’ Aquino and the human rights violations during the Martial Law period?
Senate President Enrile will address decades-old controversies and bare his life story to Filipinos for the first time in a special two-hour documentary that will tackle the roles he played in the country’s tumultuous history that will air this Sunday (Sept 23) on ABS-CBN.
To mark the 40th anniversary of the declaration of martial law, ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs will go behind the scenes and walk through the corridors of power with Enrile to attempt to answer questions that have been in the public’s consciousness for years.
Get the facts straight from the people who have encountered, worked and clashed with the man who has always been eyed with suspicion and regarded with fear for being the defense minister during the Martial Law regime and for allegedly plotting a coup against the late President Cory Aquino. Despite this, history also saw him as the EDSA Revolution hero who helped oust the Marcos regime 26 years ago and the judicious presiding judge of the Senate impeachment court that convicted Chief Justice Renato Corona drew raves from supporters and critics alike.
At 88, Enrile insists distortions of Philippine history must be corrected before he retires.
What part of history needs to be changed? Who is the real Juan Ponce Enrile? Is a hero or a heel? Don’t miss “Johnny: The Juan Ponce Enrile Story” this Sunday (Sept 23) in Sunday’s Best after “Gandang Gabi Vice” on ABS-CBN.
