This is baloney! Gloria is a fine, upstanding woman, who loves her country very much, and she did public service out of love for her country. I am friends with Gloria's cousin Rose, Rose is an amazing woman who spends her time doing charity work, and Rose told me that Gloria served out of love for her country and that Gloria had the best of intentions. Gloria is innocent of any wrongdoing, and Aquino is a scumbag. Gloria must be set free NOW, and all charges must be dropped NOW.

Arrested Filipino ex-leader moved to army hospital
The Associated Press

Sunday, Dec. 11, 2011 | 3:30 a.m.

Former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo was transferred to a military hospital Friday to be detained on electoral fraud charges in the next chapter in the Philippines' political drama pitting her against a popular, reformist successor.

The night before she was moved from the private hospital suite where she was arrested while undergoing treatment for a bone ailment, Arroyo told a TV station that the charges against her are all "demagoguery."

"It is sad that our leaders now are more concerned with destroying reputations and black propaganda and prejudgement," Arroyo told GMA TV network. "All I can say is that I have peace of mind because my conscience is clear. As I have said, during my presidency, my sole purpose was to serve."

Under court orders, Arroyo was taken to the same two-bedroom, 1,615-square-feet (150-square-meters) hospital suite where her predecessor Joseph Estrada was confined for three years. Arroyo had helped oust him on corruption charges in 2001, and she quickly pardoned him after he was convicted in 2007.

Associated Press photographer Bullit Marquez, whom Arroyo allowed to take pictures of her shortly before the transfer, described her as looking frail and speaking hoarsely. Her husband said she lost 20 pounds (9 kilograms) and was down to 93 pounds (42 kilos) but appeared relaxed Friday.

Gloria must be set free NOW, and all charges must be dropped NOW! Gloria is a very good Christian woman who did public service out of love for the Philippines, and Gloria is totally innocent of any wrongdoing. Gloria must be free to spend Christmas with her famiy, and Gloria must not be allowed to spend Christmas locked up. The good people of the world must rise up in support of Goria.

No Christmas at home for Arroyo: Philippine court
(AFP)– 10 hours ago

MANILA — A Philippine court on Wednesday rejected detained former president Gloria Arroyo's request to spend Christmas at home or use her mobile phone and computer in the hospital where she is being held.

The 64-year-old Arroyo, who says she is suffering from a rare spinal illness, is expected to be tried as early as next month on charges of rigging the 2007 senatorial elections.

She was arrested in her hospital bed at a private Manila hospital last month and held without bail, but the court later ordered her to be moved to the government-run military hospital.

"They (Arroyo's family) are allowed to spend Christmas at the (hospital) from December 24 to 26 and from December 31 to January 2," court clerk Joel Pelicano said.

But Arroyo won other concessions from the court, including an hour's walk on the hospital grounds and a visit to the hospital chapel every day.

"We respect the decision of the court if that is (the judge's) decision," said Ferdinand Topacio, a member of Arroyo's legal team.

President Benigno Aquino, who was elected to replace Arroyo in 2009, has accused his predecessor of election sabotage and of massive corruption during her term from 2001 to 2010.

He blocked a Supreme Court order to let Arroyo travel abroad for medical care in November ahead of her arrest, and has made convicting Arroyo the centrepiece of his anti-corruption campaign.


This is a horrible miscarriage of justice, Gloria is a wonderful person, Gloria served the Philippines out of love for the Philippines, and Gloria is totally innocent of any wrongdoing, Gloria must be set free NOW, and all charges need to be dropped NOW.

The good people of our world must rise up in support of Gloria.
