From Banking Fraud to Murder?

   When suffering injustice, imagine how the Native Americans felt.  Their land was taken from them by uninvited white men, who then imprisoned them in Reservations.  Or think about the African-Americans who were taken from their country to be enslaved.  They were forced to work for no pay, maltreated in ways present day animal activists would be in uproar when done to animals.

   The toughest thing about injustice is the wait.  Crimes are never resolved in the same year.  Some take decades to get justice if at all.  William E. Gladstone said “Justice delayed is justice denied.”  In governments and courts of mere mortals, justice is so “denied” that many take the law in their own hands.  

   In the Bible, three cried “How long?”  In the Book of Habakkuk, it says: “How long, O Jehovah, must I cry for help, but you do not hear?  How long must I ask for help from violence, but you do not intervene?...So law is paralyzed, And justice is never carried out.”  (Habakkuk 1:2-4

   In the Book of Psalms, King David says: “How long, O Jehovah, will you forget me? …How long will my enemy triumph over me?” (Psalm 13:1-2)

   Jesus with all his powers as the Son of God says: “O faithless and twisted generation, how long must I continue with you? How long must I put up with you?” (Matthew 17:17

   The great thing about the above passages is that Jehovah’s faithful servants felt free to ask "How long?"  We can too.  They were not condemned for asking.  That assures us that Jehovah understands when he reads our hearts and see hurt, anger and frustration at being victimized.  

   My father died in August of this year.  Some of us in the family believe he was poisoned by his adopted daughter, a child he raised as his own and put through expensive education.  My interviews with two bank managers from two different banks showed this adopted woman managed to put her name in the bank accounts with the approval of the bank managers.  

   The Philippine banking law states that accounts should be frozen upon the death of even just one of the account owners.  My stepmother died in February, 2016.  The banks did not freeze the accounts and allowed the adopted to continuously withdraw, even closing one of the accounts one month before my father died and more than one year after my stepmother died.  The withdrawal form from the bank specifically states that “WE DECLARE UNDER THE PENALTIES OF PERJURY THAT MY CO DEPOSITOR(S) IS/ARE STILL LIVING.”  

   “The One securing justice for those defrauded…he thwarts the plans of the wicked” (Psalm 146:7)
