Supreme Court Prosecution on Former President Arroyo

 

 

 

 

Philippine’s Justices led by Chief Justice Renato Corona (top-C) during a hearing to nullify the electoral sabotage case against former President Gloria Arroyo inside the Supreme Court in Manila, Philippines, 22 November 2011.  A petition submitted to the Court by the Arroyos that the case should be declared null and void since it was based on the findings of the joint Department of Justice-Commission on Elections panel, the creation of which her camp claims was unconstitutional.  Arroyo was arrested at a private hospital in Manila on 18 November just hours after the Commission on Elections filed the case against her.  The charge is non-bailable and punishable by life imprisonment. – Photoville International
