“Even as President Aquino’s administration claims to be on track in its anti-corruption campaign in pursuing Chief Justice Corona’s conviction, let us all be reminded that former President Arroyo, a bigger plunderer and a human rights violator has yet to be made accountable.”
Thus said Gabriela Women’s Party Representative Luz Ilagan following Mrs. Arroyo’s arraignment and as the Senate impeachment court tackles anew today the Article 7 on the partiality of Chief Justice Renato Corona as revealed in the Supreme Court’s issuance of a temporary restraining order against the travel ban on former President Arroyo.
“DOJ Secretary Leila De Lima’s testimony brings to mind how the Aquino administration almost bungled the case against Mrs. Arroyo with delays in the filing of cases against the former president. Several other cases have been filed against Mrs. Arroyo, all of which are moving at a pace so much slower than a snail’s. Have they not learned their lessons? Justice delayed is justice denied,” said Ilagan.
“The lethargy and indolence with which the Aquino administration continues to direct the prosecution of the plunder and human rights cases against Mrs. Arroyo casts doubt on President Aquino’s determination and sincerity in pursuing accountability. This remains a cause for outrage and unrest.” #
