PCSO plunder case vs Gloria stronger than electoral sabotage
A PROGRESSIVE lawmaker said the PCSO plunder case against Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo at the Sandiganbayan First Division in connection on the use of intelligence fund of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office is stronger than the electoral sabotage case.
Bayan Muna Rep. Teddy Casiño said the use of the intelligence fund was allegedly hidden in the regular accounting procedures of the PCSO and is stronger than the electoral sabotage case.
Arroyo was allowed to post bail of P1 million by Pasay City Regional Trial Court Judge Jesus citing the case against Arroyo is weak. “Unlike the electoral sabotage case, may documentary at testimonial evidence ito,” Casiño said.
“Isang taong inimbestigahan ng Ombudsman ito. Siguro naman matibay-tibay ito,” he added.
Casiño, who is a complainant in the case, said one of the strongest pieces of evidence they have is the memorandum signed with initials of Arroyo allowing the conversion from operational to intelligence fund.
