Pnoy or former president Benigno Aquino III, also known as Noynoy turns a blind eye to the revelation of Master Sergeant Pablo Martinez. He alleges that although he did not hear the direct order, he knows from the conspirators of the Ninoy Aquino’s assassination that “Danding” is the mastermind. Martinez is killed in what initially appears to be an accident along Roxas Boulevard.

Foul Play on Martinez’ Death
His family cries foul over his death. The evaluation of the accident or crime scene in Roxas Boulevard supports the claim. An eyewitness narrates that an SUV Montero driven by Henry Roque ran over him after he fell from his bicycle after it hit the bike. His son Diomedes, also an Air Force sergeant, suspects that he was murdered.
Not keen to Find the Real Killer
Pnoy seems not keen to uncover who were behind his father’s killing, as well as that of Rolando Galman, who is the alleged gunman. This is despite his being the most powerful man in the country for four years.
Martinez is one of the conspirators in Aquino’s assassination. He serves nearly 30 years in jail for the crime. In 2007, he volunteers to disclose the brains of the murder. Prior to that in 1995, he testifies that Galman is Ninoy’s killer with a single bullet to the head. He admits escorting the assassin to a motel to spend the night before the assassination.
Cojuanco or Marcos?
Ninoy’s assassination is the driver of the EDSA revolution that installs the Aquinos into power after blaming Marcos for it. The Aquinos are very forgiving to the real mastermind of their patriarch’s killer – but just recently, senator Richard Gordon in his privilege speech during the Marcos burial session, he urged the senate to re-open the case if they want closure to the alleged Martial Law abuses.
