Interaksyon.com reports that Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales junked the plunder case filed against former president and current Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo "in connection with the sale and disposition of the Iloilo airport in 2007." It was dismissed due to lack of evidence.
The report noted: "The plunder case was filed by Danilo Lihaylihay also sought to prosecute former Arroyo-era officials Alberto G. Romulo, Eduardo R. Ermita, Margarito B. Teves, John Philip P. Sevilla, and businessman Andrew L. Tan."
Interaksyon.com quoted Morales’ resolution. In it, she explained: "A cursory look at the allegations made by complainant Lihaylihay shows that he did not allege, much less present any evidence, that either respondent Arroyo, Romulo, Ermita, Teves or Sevilla acquired ill-gotten wealth in the manner described under Section 1(d) of the Anti-Plunder Law."
