On the Dismissal of the Plunder Case against Former President Gloria Arroyo
July 19, 2016
Mrs. Arroyo has suffered enough, having spent six years in detention under an extremely difficult physical condition.
Even for purely humanitarian consideration, I support the Supreme Court’s ruling to free her and accord her some comfort for the remaining years of her life, which are not really that many, considering her age.
As I have repeatedly said, while I will never forget who they are, I have forgiven all my tormentors for the past nine years under her administration, living or dead.
