GMA News Online, citing a 24 Oras segment, reports that Office of Political Affairs Secretary Ronald Llamas was asked to weigh in on the government’s move against former president and current Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. He said, "Alam ko kasi merong almost 20 na hinahanda na mga cases-plunder, electoral sabotage, et cetera. So, sa tingin ko in the next few days or weeks ay baka 'yung mga kaso na yan, ay magsimula nang isampa ang mga yan (I know that there are almost cases being prepared-plunder, electoral sabotage, et cetera. So, I think those cases will be filed in the next few days or weeks)."

 

Arroyo technically under arrest for electoral sabotage at the St. Luke’s Medical Center in Taguig. The charge carries a life sentence.

 

Not everyone is backing the administration’s move.



According to the report, Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago warned that "a movement within Malacañang that is following blind vengeance against Rep. Arroyo" is "putting President (Noynoy) Aquino in legal peril." She pointed out: "There is political persecution, there is no due process of law, and there is inherent bad faith in the timing of filing of the case in the regular (Regional Trial Court) and consequent issuance of a warrant of arrest."
