Aquino assures Arroyo of due process

"Fresh from his trip to Indonesia, President Benigno Aquino III on Saturday night rallied the public behind his administration’s effort to prosecute former President and now Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo for alleged electoral sabotage, while promising to accord her due process.
“She will have an equal opportunity to defend herself in court because that is the right of every Filipino,” he said in Filipino in his arrival statement at the Villamor Air Base in Pasay City." Source: Inquirer

Hmm.. don't get me wrong. I'm all for prosecuting ex Philippine president Gloria Arroyo. She should really pay for all she did.

But for PNoy to say that she will get due process? After that Hold Departure - TRO stunt they pulled? He should really understand his platform that he ran on. Bending the law isn't really what we signed on for. Regardless if it's for the good or the bad.

The law is the law and he should know better.
