GMA Trial Must Be Pursued as Corona Impeachment Rolls Out - GWP Rep. De Jesus
Press Release Posted on January 16th, 2012.
"Justice delayed is justice denied. The Filipino people have long-awaited to see former President Gloria Arroyo charged and tried in court for various cases of graft, corruption and human rights violations committed under her watch. Now that her doctors have declared that she is no longer sick, the Department of Justice should see to the swift trials of the various cases against her," declared GWP Rep. Emmi De Jesus.
"As all eyes are turned to the first day of the Senate hearing on the Corona Impeachment case, we should not forget that the higher goal is to see Gloria Arroyo face justice. As a former President, Arroyo held the highest accountability in the land and she should be made liable for all her sins, as they are proven in court," the Gabriela solon added.
"I call on President Noynoy Aquino to be as zealous in holding Gloria Arroyo answerable for her sins as he has been in his attacks against Corona. Let it not be said that after all of Arroyo's crimes, the Aquino administration simply slapped her on the wrist. The country owes that much to the many poor Filipinos victimized by Arroyo's anti-people policies over the long period she clung to her crown in Malacanang," ended Rep. De Jesus.
