Press Release
October 4, 2012


"The Sandiganbayan yesterday issued an arrest warrant against Cong. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (CGMA) for her plunder case involving PCSO funds. I understand that the former President's lawyers have already filed a motion for reconsideration for the Court to reconsider the warrant.

"I hope the First Division looks into the humanitarian considerations surrounding CGMA in deciding the MR.

"I believe that CGMA is not a flight risk, and is in fact facing all the charges leveled against her in the proper courts. She is currently battling a serious ailment that threatens her life. I believe that these alone, should merit the Court's attention.

"She is very sick. Hindi biro ang hinaharap ng dating pangulo. Bilang mga Pilipino, I hope we find compassion in our hearts. Hindi naman natin sinasabing isawalang-bahala na lang ang mga kaso laban sa kanya. Ang sinsasabi lang natin ay bigyan natin siya ng kunsiderasyon habang hinaharap niya ang mga ito.

"We are also appealing to the administration to join us in this call. Pagkakataon ito para ipakita ng Malakanyang ang 'di pagigigng benggatibo."
