AN APPEAL TO PHILIP MORRIS: Robert Blair Carabuena is Bad for Your Corporate Health

Philip Morris has recently announced the suspension of its HR executive Robert Blair Carabuena pending the result of the police investigation and judiciary decision on the road-rage incident between the aforementioned and MMDA traffic enforcer Saturnino Fabros. This petition received wide support in the Philippines, as well as netizens that closely monitored its developments.

The online appeal was been initiated by

  1. Dr. J. Prospero E. De Vera III, PhD
  2. Ma. Lourdes N. Tiquia
  3. Ellen Tordesillas
  4. Marilyn Manaay Robles

But prior to the decision of Philip Morris, my issue was:

Appeal? Why the hell should we appeal when we ought to demand for his outright termination from a company whose main business is to replenish the very consumers it drives to its death?

He messed up. Big time. Exercising his elitist behavior over a helpless institutional peasant. That a criminal complaint be lodged against him should be done as quickly as possible, and that media witness the proceedings vigilantly as we’ve been infamous for the slow pace of our judicial system, trapped in a mountain of technical issues that deprive the aggrieved of the very justice they seek, and giving this lowlife the opportunity to use his money and influence to further derail the same.

That he be afforded due process is both his right and our obligation, however, it does not exempt Philip Morris from instituting its vaunted corporate policies to test its press releases.
