    He deserves it… he fought for our freedom and starved off the regime chance agenda but it is now time to give others a chance!

    1. just saying says:

      Patriot you obviously don’t any moral values to make such a statement. The real issue is how he acquired all this property on his salary because he should have been concentrating on his job. According to you even if these properties were irregularly acquired that’s ok!
