Gloria Arroyo’s downfall actually started in July

November 21, 2011 · 122 Comments

By Raïssa Robles
The Arroyo camp is complaining that the Commission on Elections and the Department of Justice “railroaded” and “rushed” the electoral sabotage case against her. The truth is the opposite of that. The “evidence” of Arroyo’s crime first came to light on July 11 this year and quickly unfolded from there.
Former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and former Muslim Autonomous Region Governor Zaldy Ampatuan share a meal in happier times

It all began when Zaldy Ampatuan – a suspected mass murderer whom Arroyo

handpicked to be Governor of the Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) – suddenly told ABS-CBN TV that his family helped rig the 2007 polls for Arroyo in their home province of Maguindanao. He claimed that as a result, Arroyo’s candidate Juan Miguel Zubiri won a seat in the Senate. During the Comelec counting at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC), Zubiri emerged No. 1 in Maguindanao province and won over 195,000 votes there. Gloria Arroyo’s senatorial bets won all the votes there while the opposition – that then included Benigno Aquino III – all got zero. Arroyo’s spokesman Raul Lambino said the accusation was self-serving. Ampatuan merely wanted to save his own skin. By offering to testify against Arroyo, he might evade being charged for the 2009 massacre

of 58 people, including 34 journalists, in Maguindanao, southern Philippines. At that time, Ampatuan had already been in a maximum security cell for two years trying to avoid arraignment for the mass murder. Ampatuan’s claim would probably have fallen by the wayside if another controversial personality had not surfaced three days later on July 13 and sang the same tune. Lintang Bedol, an election supervisor for the southern province of Sultan Kudarat and long wanted by the Comelec for cheating, suddenly gave an interview to ABS-CBN saying Arroyo cheated in the 2004 and 2007 elections. Two weeks later, the man whom Zaldy Ampatuan claimed was the main beneficiary of cheating suddenly resigned from the Senate. Juan Miguel Zubiri vacated his Senate seat on August 3 tearfully saying:
Without admitting any fault and with my vehement denial of the alleged electoral fraud hurled against

Kung may nandaya po sa 2007 elections. Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III had actually fought a lonely four-year battle to unseat Zubiri from the Senate and claim it as his. of cheating for Zubiri. we did not know anything about it. Lilian Radam and Yogie Martirizar.] The candidate who had accused Zubiri of stealing the votes assumed Zubiri’s vacated seat and vowed to go after the “mastermind” of the cheating.me. he had accused two provincial election officials. This is the same Yogie Martirizar whom I wrote about as having almost the same calcium deficiency disorder as Arroyo in my . wala po tayong kinalaman diyan…[If anyone cheated in the 2007 elections. I am submitting my resignation as a duly elected Senator of the Republic of the Philippines in the election for which I am falsely accused without mercy and compassion. Way back in 2007.

They signed affidavits admitting they had rigged the vote for Arroyo’s senatorial candidates and were helped by government forces in the cheating operation. It was this domino of revelations which prompted Comelec to conduct a joint investigation with DOJ. . accusing Arroyo and others of electoral sabotage. from leaving the country for four years After Zubiri resigned. He named Martirizar. They also claimed that Arroyo’s own election lawyer Alberto Agra – whom she later appointed acting justice secretary – defended them against the poll fraud charges. Zaldy Ampatuan and Bedol as his witnesses. Senator Pimentel immediately filed a complaint before the body. Radam.piece entitled – Gloria Arroyo stopped a woman. Yogie Martirizar and Lilian Radam suddenly volunteered to become state witnesses. with an illness and a case just like hers.

Unas said Mrs Arroyo told Andal Sr.Star witness Norie Unas During the investigation. Andal Sr. Unas claimed he accompanied Andal Sr to a dinner with Mrs Arroyo and her husband Jose Miguel inside Malacañang Palace shortly before the 2007 elections. There. to “produce a 12-0 result in Maguindanao (for her 12 senatorial candidates). The Arroyo couple’s lawyers had agreed to submit their counter-affidavits last .” To this day. Mrs Arroyo has issued no comment on the charges upon the advice of her lawyer. even if you have to rearrange or change the results. The star witness of them all was Norie Unas. 14 election officials and one technician working on computerized voters lists testified. Maguindanao’s provincial administrator and the right hand man of Zaldy Ampatuan’s father.

totally denying Unas’ claims. Five days later on November 18. the Comelec used the panel results to file a complaint of electoral sabotage against Mrs Arroyo before Pasay City Regional Trial Court Judge Jesus Mupas. Instead of doing that.Monday Nov 14. the case would be deemed submitted for resolution. their lawyers asked the Supreme Court last Friday Nov 11 to void the probe because it was “a kangaroo court.” Then their lawyers told the panel that Monday Nov 14 to freeze the probe and wait for Supreme Court to act on their petition. . who then issued an arrest warrant that very night. The rest is history. He said the panel disregarded the affidavit of Andal Sr. The panel refused and Mike Arroyo’s lawyer Ferdinand Topacio stormed out and denounced the “railroading” of the investigation. After that.

Windy says: December 10. 2011 at 5:32 am Eto pa isang kawatan Mr. Paki imbestigahan lang Pnoy para talagang makulong ang lahat na kawatan…walang favoritism: The TRUTH about SCTEX (Subic-ClarkTarlac Expressway. President. The issue is also one of overpricing.9. that runs through Hacienda Luisita) is that Hacienda Luisita or the Cojuangco’s was paid by the government P80 million for the right of way for 83 hectares of land that was made part of the expressway.

Luisita for every square meter of land ROW, at a time when the selling price of farm land in Tarlac was only from P6 to P8 per square meter. Therefore, the Luisita land paid for by the government was overpriced by at least P92 per sq.m On top of the P80 million, government also used P170 million of taxpayers’ money to construct a road interchange that connected Luisita’s private road to SCTEX. Other private companies like Mamplasan, Asia Brewery, Greenfields and Southwoods paid the government so their properties would be connected to the South Luzon Expressway. These companies paid the Philippine National Construction Corp. (PNCC) P241 million each for the interchanges that connected their properties to SLEX. So how come it is the opposite with Luisita? Instead of Luisita

paying the government for the interchange that connected Luisita’s private road to SCTEX, it was the government that paid Luisita. The overpricing has been confirmed by the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) during a congressional hearing. But it was not the government alone that got a raw deal from the SCTEX project. The poor farmers who had been toiling at Luisita for decades also got a raw deal. As the supposed owners of 32.5 percent of Luisita, the farmers should have gotten at least P25 million of the P80 million ROW payment. Instead, they were only given dividends ranging from 50 centavos to P1. A House committee investigation established that Noynoy used his influence as a congressman in 2004 to have the original route diverted to Luisita which at that time

was largely inaccessible. In fact, Noynoy served as the proponent of the SCTEX project that directly benefited his family. The congressional hearings elicited the fact that Noynoy used his influence as a legislator not only to push the SCTEX project, but specifically the inter-connection of Hacienda Luisita to it, at a huge cost to the government and the taxpayers. The net effect of Noynoy’s machinations is that from its original estimate of P18.7 billion in 1999, the SCTEX project cost was adjusted to P21 billion in 2004 and, by the time it was finished, the cost had ballooned to a whopping P32.808 billion, or twice its original price. Noynoy made sure he was present in most meetings related to the construction of SCTEX. To show their disdain for the congressional committee investigating the

Raissa, Thanks for sharing us (readers) how the chronicle of events led to her downfall.

No wonder they’re in hurry to get out of the country. Probably her lawyers sensed that the arm of the law is finally catching up with her. I don’t feel any sympathy nor compassion at all I want her to pay for all the misdeed she did to the state and to the Filipino people. Thanks and more power to you.

Ms. Raiisa, if GMA is found guilty of Electoral Sabotage in 2004 (file the case ASAP) to keep herself in power, then she was an illegal president, which makes all her actions, decisions, appointments, etc. all illegal also. While the present adminstration cannot undo all of the actions of a fake president, it can certainly choose which ones to nullify. If any of the 8 justices of the SC appointed by GMA were appointed after 2004, then they should be removed from office without the impeachment process because their

appointments were illegal, invalid, and unenforceable. Anong say mo?

There was no electoral sabotage law yet in 2004. And the prescriptive period of fives years for filing a case against her for 2004 has long passed. Only Congress can take the unprecdented step of undoing her proclamation.

Christian V. Marlon Ramos Philippine Daily Inquirer By 12:39 am | Friday. . 2011 13share362 345 former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo AFP FILE PHOTO Justice Secretary Leila de Lima on Thursday said she had asked the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) to look into “unverified information” that the government of the Dominican Republic had provided “passports” to former President Gloria MacapagalArroyo and her family. De Lima raised the possibility that Arroyo and her husband.Cathy C. Yamsuan. Speaking with reporters. might seek political asylum if the Supreme Court allowed them to leave for abroad. November 11th. Esguerra. Jose Miguel “Mike” Arroyo.

The authority there would be the DFA. A number of messages on the Arroyos’ “escape plans” had been circulating in the media since De Lima announced on Tuesday that she would not grant the former President’s request to be allowed to seek medical treatment overseas for her bone ailment. 23. the high court voted 13-0 to grant Mike Arroyo’s petition for a TRO on his inclusion in the immigration bureau’s watch list after being tagged in . who once served as Arroyo’s spokesperson and chief of staff during her presidency. DOJ asks SC to defer ruling Last Aug.” De Lima said. They can always do that.” she said. Part of the supposed plans was for Chief Justice Renato Corona. “I’m asking the DFA on how to confirm that.“Anything is possible. to cut his US trip short and grant the petition for a temporary restraining order (TRO) that the Arroyo couple had separately filed at the Supreme Court. The “sinister plot” purportedly hatched by the Arroyo camp was the subject of text messages received by reporters covering the justice beat.

Solicitor General Jose Anselmo Cadiz argued that Arroyo’s claim that she would suffer “irreparable damage” if her petition for a TRO would not be granted was baseless. the Department of Justice (DOJ) asked the high court to allow it to file its comment on the separate petitions filed by the Arroyos before acting on their request for a TRO.a Senate hearing as the owner of two used helicopters purchased by the Philippine National Police as brand-new. Cadiz said Arroyo’s medical abstracts did not support her claim that her health condition had been worsening. .” Legal cover De Lima said she had referred to the DFA information that the government had been receiving. In separate manifestations filed by the Office of the Solicitor General. On Thursday. He also said “there is no actual extreme and urgent necessity for [her] to travel abroad. the DOJ urged the high court to defer decision on the Arroyos’ petitions and set oral arguments on the matter.

“which is becoming the basis for our doubt on the true agenda for [the Arroyos’] travel. That’s what we’re afraid of. . there was no mention if they had found a specialist in stem cell treatment. adding: “There are gaps and inconsistencies in the information they are supplying us.” she said. “That’s really the legal effect. If the TRO is issued at this very moment. the Supreme Court administrator and spokesperson.” she said. then they can just leave a few hours [later]. De Lima pointed out that Mike Arroyo recently traveled overseas ostensibly to seek stem cell treatment for his wife. that nothing could prevent the Arroyos from leaving the country should the tribunal issue a TRO.” “What if our suspicions are true that this spectacle was just [meant as] a shield for their actual intention to escape the cases against them? They can do anything to give it a legal cover. And when we connect these to the information we’re getting.” she said. “But in their request [for an allow-departure order]. they bolster our suspicions.” De Lima agreed with Jose Midas Marquez.

I will not recommend it. “I don’t enjoy a profile as prominent as hers. Panfilo Lacson warned that life on the run would be hard for Arroyo. Lacson said it would be unwise for Arroyo to attempt what he had done.Life on the run Sen. “I’ve experienced how difficult it is. yet so many Filipinos abroad were able to recognize me.” said Lacson. “Just let me clarify that I was not a fugitive from justice but a fugitive from injustice. “Your adrenaline and alert level would always be up.” he said. . It was a good thing those who did were sympathetic to my situation. “There are Filipinos everywhere and they would recognize me.” the senator said. who spent 18 months hiding abroad after being linked to the murder of publicist Salvador Dacer and the latter’s driver Emmanuel Corbito.” he recalled.” Lacson returned last March after the Court of Appeals revoked the arrest warrant issued against him by the Makati Regional Trial Court in connection with the double-murder case.

Miriam Defensor-Santiago told the Inquirer that Arroyo could take her appeal for medical treatment abroad to the United Nations Human Rights Commission. The long arm of the law is longer now than before. life on the run would be more difficult for them. “[The world is small] and the pressure of international opinion is so great that I think no person who has occupied such a high position as the presidency would risk that kind of escape. Edgardo Angara said Arroyo was sensitive to public opinion and would not gamble with her legacy as a world leader. “Besides.” he said. Where would she hide in case her escape or failure to return is reported by the media?” Angara said. the media will always find her. “Especially in this … era where there is practically no place to hide.“If [Arroyo and her husband] have more enemies than I do.

But one can file a motion to lift. Maybe they are good at doctoring documents. not doctors. myself. (Fraud lies hid in general statements. or motion to vacate. Fraus latet in generalibus. One. Nominally. none. The Constitution provides the exception. “as may be provided by law”. has to invoke a specific law to justify the exception to the rule. If my client were really in danger. therefore. and would have filed the motion. I would have brought the doctor to the Court.) . So far. so far. Point 4 – Agreed. to request the Court to question the doctor.Point 2 – No MR on a TRO. there are only general statements from lawyers. There is none. I have obtained such a lifting. albeit issued with obscene haste. on hilariously unsupportable claims of the illness being life-threatening. The TRO is correct.

She could have filed a motion to clarify (whether or not the TRO was complied with). . Marquez cannot declare compliance or non-compliance. The justices assessed compliance. it is difficult to obey. In fact. so. 2011 9:23 pm Point 6. if De Lima read it. Only the Court can determine compliance. I would want to read the TRO.54. and found it wanting. Especially. since. if there is no declaration from the Court that the conditions were complied with. The government’s obedience to the TRO is predicated on the compliance to the conditions.November 24. saxnviolins . Considering the editorializing of the reverse Midas touch. No. there were conditions. that was what was taken up that Friday. it would have provided her the perfect excuse to not obey immediately. in this case. In fact.

lost a hometown decision. to receive the CA TRO. So I served it on the PNB manager. Topacio should have stood his ground.The tactic of De Lima of disappearing. End of story. the government office I worked for. In this case. and waited at the airport. and obtained an order of execution pending appeal. The bank is the agent of the plaintiffs. Of course. and releases the money. The lawyers were not home. We retained the money. they are not lawyers. so I could not serve it. since the TRO said the plaintiffs. but not inside. in order not to physically receive the TRO is typical. So service to them was sufficient. But that would not have been consistent with the stance that the woman is deathly ill. the agents had an excuse. . or their agents. and was also a respondent. the Bureau of Immigration is the agent of the DOJ. when it executes the judgment. In an ARMM city. They were near the PNB.

to evaluate my client’s appeal. Agreed. It was done to force her to appear in court. 2011 9:41 pm Point 10 – An offense is neither bailable or non-bailable on the mere say-so of the government.55. I have a case. saxnviolins . not to incarcerate the woman (arrest and incarceration are two different things). will be resolved.November 24. The warrant of arrest of Mupas was made. the issue of bail. where the Supreme Court ordered the NBI to detain a Pangasinan stenographer. That is why a bail hearing is made. In that hearing. and detain her. to be submitted to the Supreme Court. considering whether to evidence is strong or not. nor oppressive about Mupas’ order. until she shall have finished the steno notes. to determine whether or not to grant bail. So there is nothing irregular. .

The denial of bail is made if the offense is “non-bailable” and evidence of guilt is strong. and not be incarcerated while being tried.” That is a gratuitous factual premise. The right to travel is unrelated to bail. there is fear that she will not return. that is why an HDO is being sought from Mupas. Bail is posted so you can go home. . Flight risk? Wasn’t she about to literally fly (on a plane)? Locsin is confused about bail and the right to travel.“Once GMA returns. she can no longer be considered a flight risk. One may post bail and go home. because the evidence of guilt is not that strong. But one may still be denied the right to travel if it appears that one is a flight risk. Precisely.

hindi ang Hukuman. 94284 April 8. 1991. tao ang nagpapasya niyan. 57.True.R. 56. But one may still not wish to face trial even if the evidence of guilt is not that strong. or they are political discussion points. 2011 9:43 pm The points I did not discuss. No. The precedent here is Ricardo Silverio v Court of Appeals. but he was still denied the right to travel. 2011 9:50 pm # 4: .November 24.
