“We want Gloria Macapagal Arroyo in jail. It’s been almost three months since GMA was issued a warrant of arrest yet she remains free and in an air-conditioned hospital room. This is injustice and not what Mike Arroyo claims,” said Marie Hilao-Enriquez, chairperson of Karapatan. Hilao-Enriquez reacted to Mike Arroyo’s “surreal” statement at the Pasay RTC during GMA’s arraignment today that the “case of electoral sabotage against GMA is injustice.”
