‘To God be all glory!’ President Macapagal-Arroyo acquitted

10

GOD has answered the prayers of millions of Filipino supporters of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo who saw from the beginning the unjust spirit of the Aquino Administration in having her arrested and falsely charged.

The Supreme Court en banc has acquitted the former President and now Pampanga Representative of the crime of plunder, with which she was falsely charged by former President BS Aquino and his prosecutors for allegedly having embezzled P366 million of the intelligence funds of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) from 2008 to 2010.

She has always proclaimed her innocence. Evidence has proved her to be true and the charges unjust and false.

Mrs. Arroyo was at first treated crudely like a common criminal by BS Aquino’s Justice Department people. And she fell progressively sicker of a life-threatening condition. Public opinion and the court had to force then Justice Secretary, now Senator, Leila de Lima to agree to have her placed under hospital arrest at the Veterans Memorial Medical Center (VMMC) in Quezon City.


Suffering from her illness but making sure that she would not just be oppressed as a helpless ordinary citizen, Mrs. Arroyo and her family and friends made sure she still held an official position that ought to guarantee her a level of respect. She ran for congressman representing her home district in Pampanga province and won by landslides.

One by one several of the many plunder charges filed against her were dismissed by the court for being baseless. Needing more thorough and expert medical attention abroad, Mrs. Arroyo sought to be granted bail for medical reasons and be allowed to go abroad while solemnly promising to come back and face trial. The prosecuting authority, the Ombudsman, ceaselessly blocked her petitions until the Sandiganyan First Division made a ruling denying her petition for bail.

In October 2015 Mrs. Arroyo filed a petition for certiorari before the Supreme Court asking for the reversal of the Sandiganbayan First Division’s rulings denying her petition for bail. She had as well filed a petition for demurrer to evidence, seeking the dismissal of the case against her because the prosecution had been presenting nothing but weak and insubstantial evidence to prove their case.

After the former President filed her petition for certiorari, the Supreme Court ordered the Sandiganbayan to temporarily halt the trial until the petition was resolved.

Experts had observed that the Aquino regime was doing everything it could to find Mrs. Arroyo guilty but the charges simply could not stick because she has always been truly innocent.

All told she has been incarcerated for six years. With the Supreme Court decision acquitting her, she should be given her freedom soonest.

We pray for her eventual full recovery and continued well being, so this uniquely talented woman, a person of wisdom and priceless experience, may continue to actively contribute to the betterment of our country and people.

    Okay. so the Supreme Court has just acquitted former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo of the crime of plunder in connection with the millions in Phiiippine Sweepstakes Charity Funds which ON HER INSTRUCTIONS, were given to certain parties [I think to Roman Catholic bishops, if my memory does not fail me now].

    That’s over and done with.

    But if my memory does not fail me now, she is also charged with the non-bailable crime of RIGGING THE 2007 ELECTIONS, a crime which carries the sentence of RECLUSION PERPETUA. Has she likewise been found NOT GUILTY of this charge?

  3. Matapos ipakulong si GMA ay kinuha na lahat ni Pnoy ang credit sa paglago ng economy. Sinisi ng sinisi sa kapalpakan ng kanyang administration. Ano pa kaya ang maisasalarawan sa taong ito.

  4. Ombudsman Morales and that sorry-excuse-for-an-ex-justice Secretary De Lima should both SHUT UP on this matter. They make too much noise and only show their true colors as diehard Aquino lapb**ches. These two should be charged in court and removed from office for their role in the political persecutions that took place under Aquino. THEY ARE UNWORTHY OF PUBLIC OFFICE!!!

    God has answered our prayers. P-Noy and his cohorts Morales and De Lima will now suffer the consequences of their actions. For them, vengeance will be seven times over (Gen) and they will regret what they cause GMA. God’s will be done and God bless the Philippines.

  6. Hindi makatao ang trato nung “epal” na dating mga taga muno ng bayan natin.

    Pati ang paglaya na nararapat lang ay nagawa na kahapon pinahirapan pa.

  7. Do not include God in this man made hypocrite decision! Indeed altruism is the name of the game in this country.
