President Aquino, who swept to power last year on a platform of ending poverty by fighting corruption, has his sights on a high-profile target — his predecessor Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, who faces accusations of election fraud, bribery and kickbacks.
Hindi na ‘yan kagulat-gulat dahil normal na sa Pilipinas ang korapsyon! Pampanga Rep. Gloria MAcapagal Arroyo herself prosecuted corruption charges against her predecessor, former President Joseph Ejercitko Estrada, who was convicted of plunder and sentenced to life imprisonment.
Another headline is GMA’s son, Ang Galing Pinoy party-list Rep. Juan Miguel “Mikey” Arroyo handily left for the United States on Thursday night. And another one of the Arroyos with dirty record. And of course he is a congressman out to steal and plunder more just like his parents. The whole family is tainted. He is out to do the dirty work of his mother. Its not official business, right when the mother is jailed, the son leaves for abroad? Nothing is that urgent unless he is planning something. Hmmn….
The latest update: Authorities finally served the warrant of arrest against former president and now Pampanga Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo after a local court found probable cause for electoral sabotage charges.
She is now under the custody of the Southern Police District, according to Sr. Superintendent James Bucayo.
Police said Arroyo looked rested when the warrant of arrest was read to her.
