On R. Tiglao’s column “The facts on Arroyo’s cases” (Monday Jan. 3, 2014): I am especially upset by the Aquino administration’s apparent intent to let Arroyo rot in jail without benefit of trial. This is a horrible violation of the rule of law. The denial of bail should make the convening of a trial of particular urgency because the accused is being denied her freedom. But the powers that be obviously don’t care. As you demonstrate, the case against her is weak to nonexistent. What’s important is that she’s locked up—indefinitely.
