Even if you think Arroyo is corrupt, should she be released if the evidence is weak? ~SHARE


DUTERTE WAS ONCE ASKED BY A JOURNALIST that if the evidence is weak, will he release Arroyo; Rody's answer was yes and anti-Arroyos got furious. But what answer must Duterte say? And as a lawyer, if you are asked the question, 'if the evidence is weak, will you release ___" you are duty bound to say yes.

Cayetano pointed out during the campaign that the case filed against Arroyo was the weakest.  If the government was really interested in a conviction, the government should have focused on something else like the 'hello'.

From the way it looks, Arroyo may be released soon and Duterte will have nothing to do with it. Last May 25, the Supreme Court has ordered the Sandiganbayan to submit the complete records of the remaining plunder case against former President and reelected Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. What do you think will happen next?

Sandiganbayan told to submit full record of Arroyo plunder rap

The Supreme Court has ordered the Sandiganbayan to submit the complete records of the remaining plunder case against former President and reelected Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

In a one-page notice dated May 25, the high court, upon instruction from Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno, ordered the Sandiganbayan to immediately submit the complete records of the case in connection with the alleged misuse of the P366-million Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) fund.

The high court also told the Sandiganbayan to give “prompt and preferential attention” to the directive received by Atty. Renato Bocar, executive clerk of the anti-graft court.

The order was issued before the justices resume session on Tuesday.

Arroyo recently filed a motion for an urgent resolution of her plea to be placed under house arrest.
She told the high court that her motion has been pending since last December.

In her motion, she wants to be transferred from the Veterans Memorial Medical Center in Quezon City to her house in La Vista Subdivision in the same city.

Her doctors believed that her condition will improve if she will be staying with her family.

The high tribunal earlier stopped Arroyo’s trial in the remaining plunder case through a status quo ante order (SQAO) on the proceedings before the first division of the anti-graft court pending its resolution of her bail petition. The order has been extended three times and will remain in effect until June 20. RAM/rga
