Interaksyon.com reports that Ang Galing Pinoy party-list Representative Juan Miguel "Mikey" Arroyo and his wife Angela posted bail yesterday, October 11, for the tax evasion case filed against them by the government.

 

According to Arroyo’s lawyer Ruy Rondain, the lawmaker posted bail of P200,000. That’s P20,000 for each of the 10 cases filed against them-seven against Angela and three against Mikey-before the Quezon City Regional Trial Court. The report did not enumerate the specific cases filed against the Arroyos.

 

Rondain said the bail was posted even before a warrant for the couple’s arrest was issued "to prove they have no intention of leaving the country to evade the charges." He said, "They voluntarily surrendered to show that they will face the case filed against them."

 

The Bureau of Internal Revenue says that couple has an alleged tax liability of at least P73.85 million. Earlier this month, the Department of Justice found "probable cause" to file a tax evasion case against them. The report added that three other charges have been filed against the Arroyos before the Court of Tax Appeals.
