Court Dismisses Last Case Against Gloria Macapagal Arroyo

As if we needed more proof of just how inept and incompetent Pnoy’s administration was, here we have another court throwing out what is the last of the cases it had filed against Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

Gloria Arroyo: Her patience and perseverance paid off.

Now, it becomes ever so clear that the previous administration’s cases against Arroyo was an evil to make themselves look good (in the same way Cory had to demonize Marcos to make herself appear saintly).

The long and short of the case filed against Arroyo is that it might as well have been based on a mere rumor.

Pasay Regional Trial Court Branch 112 presided by Judge Jesus Mupas has cleared House Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo of electoral sabotage charges in connection with the 2007 senatorial elections, when she was president.

The case against Arroyo alleged that she instructed former Maguindanao Governor Andal Ampatuan Sr. to rig the 2007 senatorial elections to ensure a 12-0 win for her administration’s Team Unity senatorial ticket.

Ferdinand Topacio, House Speaker Arroyo’s counsel, characterized his client’s acquittal as a “great vindication” after she had been “persecuted without end” by the administration of former President Benigno S. Aquino III.

“Not a single witness or document was ever presented showing the participation of Mrs. Arroyo in the crime for which she is charged,” Topacio said.

The Pasay RTC rejected the testimony of witness Engr. Norie Unas, who claimed that  Arroyo ordered “dapat 12-0 sa Maguindanao, kahit ayusin o palitan pa ang resulta.”

The court ruled that Unas’ testimony was uncorroborated by any other witness and is not believable.

Even granting Arroyo had issued the alleged instruction, Judge Jesus Mupas said such an instruction does not constitute a crime.

“As noted by the Court, the Information is silent as to how accused Arroyo wanted accused Ampatuan to ‘ensure’ such victory. There is no allegation in the Information that accused Arroyo ordered, or even suggested, that election documents be tampered with, or that votes for any candidate be increased or decreased,” he said.

What it appears to boil down to is that the Pnoy administration just maliciously spun whatever snippet of information it had gotten through underhanded means and attempted to make a case against Arroyo. Then, even before any of the cases could be proven, had her imprisoned.

Now that Pnoy and his brazen ilk have lost power, they are now probably sharting their pants knowing that one good turn deserves another.

But how will they fare behind bars?

Given Senator Leila De Lima’s actions and reactions, I doubt they’ll bear it with the restraint and dignity the way that Arroyo did through her years of imprisonment.

Knowing Arroyo, if and when she does decide to pursue cases against Pnoy and his gang of thieves, the cases filed against them will surely stick.

She knows government inside and out, and through her long years as President, she wielded all the powers of the executive with decisiveness and deliberateness. Unlike Pnoy who was probably petrified by inaction enabled by his pussy footing partner Mar Roxas and in the times that he did act, created even bigger problems than those who intended to solve.

In the months and years following Arroyo’s vindication from all charges filed against her by the Aquino administration, we can hope that her legacy of strong governance will start shining through.

  1. RP JUSTICE SYSTEM SUCKS !!! LAWYERS SUCKS !!! PHILIPPINE MEDIA SUCKS SOME MORE !!!
    Like what I’ve been commenting a million times FILIPINOS copied American-style justice system cannot work in the Philippines.

    I KNEW FROM THE VERY BEGINNINIG MS. ARROYO will be acquitted … no … her case would be thrown out …

    … BECAUSE:
    1. The fake news including Rappler are noisy …
    2. They telegraphed what they found against Arroyo … So, Arroyo, knew what to hide …
    3. They found no evidences against Arroyo because Arroyo got ahead of the pack … what they thought they knew and what Arroyo would hide …
    4. Arroyo is simply innocent … THEY GOT NOTHING ON ARROYO ….

    ARROYO WAS CHARGED BASED ON UNCORROBORATED INTRIGUING GOSSIPS !!!!
    And the government’s evidence? Of course, typewritten notarized affidavits from politically biased witnesses that got ax to grind.

    NOBODY EVER IN MY 4 AND A HALF YEARS IN THE PHILIPPINES EVER READ from Rappler analyzing why Arroyo is innocent. I am the only one because I ANALYZE THE BEST !!! And my best is based on the question: “DO THEY REALLY HAVE EVIDENCES? FORENSIC ACCOUNTING?”

    Those two simple questions that they have no answers at all !!!

    THE BIGGEST AND THE HEAVIEST IS FROM THE WIFE OF GEORGE CLOONEY …..

    1. MR. ARROYO’s HELICOPTER !!!
      Wheeew !!! To this day they do not know who really owns the Helicopter. It was easy-peasy. I can do it. But I’d rather not, else, I’d be deported.

      And that punk, Trillanes, instead of asking Register of Deeds the land title of BinayLand he asked that Chinese guy to produce the title TO INCRIMINATE HIMSELF? HAR! HAR! HAR! And that is coming from a LAWMAKER !!! AHA! HA! HA!

      Punk Trillanes was miffed when the title was presented it was original and not in the name of Binay !!!

      AND THE IDIOT FAKE NEWS did not attack Punk’ed Trillanes for it. I WAS THE ONLY ONE ATTACKING. It goes to show Rappler+Ressa are ignorant. Homeless SkidRow denizens knows more about law than Philippine Lawmakers.

      And … oh …. Rappler never bothered to get opinions from U.P. topnotch Lawyers if they got a case against Arroyo … INSTEAD RAPPLER MADE THEIR OWN OPINIONS AND THEY ARE NOT EVEN FRIGGIN’ LAWYERS !!!!

      *** THAT IS WHY I DO NOT WANT TO BE A “MEMBER” OF “ELITE CLUB” OF RAPPLER+ to read EXCLUSIVE CONTENTS because their exclusive contents has no meat in it ***

    2. AMERICAN JUSTICE SYSTEM IS GREAT !!! The copycat Filipinos are not.

      When they smelled dead rat in Ms. Arroyo they should not go to irresponsible Philippine Fake News to break the news … NBI should have gone to Ms Arroyo’s residences and offices without notice swoop in cart-off boxes and boxes of evidences.

      THAT IS WHAT WE DO IN AMERICA. IT IS A TEXTBOOK CASE. Textbook we sent to U.P. Ateneo and la Salle. Unfortunately, our textbooks are in English not in Tagalog so, U.P. bar topnotchers and Quantico-trained N.B.I. and PMAyer cannot learn.

      We raided ENRON! Without notice. We came out with boxes and boxes of computer hard drives and balance sheets. We did not make noise.

      HERE IS THE PROBLEM IN THE PHILIPPINES. They love circus. They love to be in the news. They besmirch and sully people before they are charged. Once charged the evidences has already been shredded and burned.

      FILIPINOS CANNOT LEARN. THEY MAY TOP THE BAR EXAM AND THE martsa-martsa sa Plaza ( My Pinay GF said it is best to write it in Tagalog ) BUT CANNOT KNOW AS SIMPLE AS INVESTIGATIVE STRATEGIES.

      WHEEEW !!!!! FILIPINOS SO BRIGHT IN WRITTEN AND ORAL EXAMS YET SO DUMB IN APPLICATION

  2. NOTARY IN THE PHILIPPINES IS THE HIGHEST HONOR A BAR TOPNOTCHER CAN DO.

    HOW MUCH DOES A NOTARY MAKE IN THE U.S.?
    notary making $100 a file makes roughly $2,200 a month and a full-time signing agent that makes $100 dollars a file makes $6,500 a month. And if you learn how to get business directly from escrow officers, mortgage officers, and real estate agents you can give yourself a 50% raise

    HOW LONG IS THE NOTARY EXAM IN THE U.S.?
    Notary Division to administer the Notary Public written test. Top… Q: How long does the state exam take? A: The exam is 50 minutes with 30 multiple-choice questions.

    HOW DO YOU BECOME A NOTARY?
    In order to become a notary public, you must be 18 years old; be a Vermont (Depending on State you practice) resident unless you are appointed to a military base, complete a live-scan and pass a criminal background check; take a state-approved educational course (6-hour course for new notaries or recommissioning notaries whose commission has or will expire before the notary application is submitted; pass the Vermont state notary exam with a score of at least 70% and file an oath and bond with the county clerk once the commission is approved.To take the notary exam, you must present either a valid driver’s license from any state, a passport from any country or a military identification.

    IN AMERICA TO BE A NOTARY IS ONLY 6-HOUR COURSE !!! Yes! After 6-hours you take exam you pass and you become a NOTARY !!!

    *** IN THE PHILIPPINES to be a notary … They must be a graduate of 4-year course of POLITICAL SCIENCE. Another 4 year course in Law. Pass the board exam to become a Lawyer. After the hurdle they would be 30 years old by then and After hundreds of thousands of pesos just to become a lawyer … ALL THEY DO IS NOTARIZE AFFIDAVITS ***

    In the Philippines to be a notary has to be a lawyer and must pass RIGorous EXAM !!! ( RIG EXAM or Rigged Exam) just to sign and stamp an Affidavits …

    IN THE U.S. you must be 18-years-old … 6-hour course … pass one-hour pick-the-best-answer exam … no black toga … and we are THE NOTARIZERs !!!!

  3. BATTLE OF AFFIDAVITS & COUNTER-AFFIDAVITS.
    In the Philippines it starts with a gossip
    Fake News picks it up as news
    Fake News interviews gossiper … and the
    Gossiped releases a press release against the gossiper
    *** THIS GOES ON AND ON ***
    When it lands in court
    Judge ask for Affidavits
    Affidavits gets picked up by Fake News
    The Gossiped RETALIATES BY COUNTER-AFFIDAVITS
    This also get picked-up by Fake News
    THEN COUNTER-AFFIDAVIT AGAINST COUNTER-AFFIDAVITS AND COUNTER-AFFIDAVITS AGAINST COUNTER-AFFIDAVITS …
    *** This is the Battle Galore of Affidavits ***
    The lazy Judge have them at it themselves in the newspaper …
    When the war-of-affidavits has settled …
    THE JUDGE DISMISSES THE CASE … and goes like this …
    By the power vested upon me and based on information from the newspapers … I HEREBY DECLARE THE GOSSIPED AS INNOCENT. I thank the newspapers to be part of the justice system it makes my life easier. NEXT CASE PLEASE ….. Ahhhhh Republic of the Philippines versus Rappler DO YOU HAVE AFFIDAVITS Messssrs ????

  4. We know that elections in our country are compromised. There will always be election cheaters, like Pnoy Aquino , Mar Roxas, and the Aquino Cojuangco political axis… Former COMELEC Chief, Andres Bautista, must be brought back to the Philippines, from the U.S., where he is seeking refuge to enjoy his loots. Bautista, was the implementor of the 2016 election frauds, by which the Fake Vice President Lugaw Robredo, was made to win, and some Senators in the LP , were made to win…. The Supreme Court, under the responsibility of the corrupt Justice Caguioa is delaying the results of the recount.

    Until we really jail these election cheaters and crooks…the HOCUS PCOS and SMART SWITIK, implemented by the COMELEC will continue. No amount of election safeguard will do, if the COMELEC itself is the source of election frauds.

    Abolish COMELEC ! Abolish HOCUS PCOS and SMART SWITIK !

    1. COMELEC CHAIR PROTECTED BY AMERICANS.
      – Andres Bautista COMELEC chair is on the lam in the U.S.? Since when? HE Must be the reason why Donald Trump won !!!
      – The last time I heard of Mar Roxas he was to create a YouTube Travel VLog. Whatever happened to it? Mar Roxas graduated from Princeton in Economics became a coffee boy to a boutique investment firm in New York with esoteric title of Assistant Vice President for a Coffee Boy. I also hear that he still owes his Mum plenty of campaign money
      – Robredo’s daughter is also in the U.S. studying … ta … da … listen to this … POLITICAL SCIENCE !!! OF COURSE! Because this is the only SCIENCE Filipinos CAN KNOW !!!
      – Philippines is the land of the RECOUNT. When they lost they ask for a RECOUNT that is where hocus pocus comes in because Filipinos cannot know how to count

      WHY DO THIEVING FILIPINOS GO ON THE LAM IN AMERICA? PDAF U.P. bagwomen also went on the lam in America. One of them came back and started pointing fingers and ratting out her accomplices.

      Give America your crooks, your bagwomen,
      Your huddled crooks yearning to breathe free from crooked Justice System,
      The wretched Filipino refuse of your teeming shore, come to us
      Send these, the crooks, tempest-tossed, to me:
      I lift my lamp beside the golden door.
      Bring your loot so you can Make America Great Again ….

  5. Mar Roxas stole the Typhoon Yolanda Fund, donated by charitable institutions all over the world. This thief is still running around, and is a candidate for Senator. Mar Roxas has crocodile skin…

    Pony Aquino and Abad, the thieves, of the multi billion funds of DAP , PDAF; and who conducted the Pork Barrel Bribery , are scott free. Most of the Senators, who became multi billionaires of the fraud, are still serving as Senators…

    Crime in the government in the Philippines, pay handsomely. This is the reason, we have many crooks in the government !

  6. I hope you guys have a spam filter real soon because scrolling through several comments with the resident caps-lock fake news idiot US-worshiper is annoying, he hates fake news in the Philippines, but enjoys propaganda from the West, like an arrogant idiot with too much too say but can’t say it all in one concise comment.

    1. I agree with you and the admin should limit those kind of rants especially if it not related to the article. Most readers here expect intelligent discussions.
