Not So Fast "Ate Glo" People Power Will Stop You from Escaping

Breaking News:
Friday, 6:20 p.m. 11/18/2011 — Six National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) agents arrived at St. Luke's Hospital in Taguig to formally serve an arrest warrant to former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo for Election Sabotage.

Friday, 10:50 a.m. 11/18/2011 — the Commission on Election (COMELEC) votes 5-2 to file Electoral Sabotage charges against former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

ess than six hours after the Philippine Supreme Court issued a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) that effectively lifted the travel restrictions placed on the former first couple by theGloria Arroyo on a wheelchair attempts to get on a night flight to Singapore Department of Justice (DOJ), former President and current Pampanga Congresswoman Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, her husband Jose Miguel Arroyo, and their son Mikey Arroyo had their bags packed and must have been looking forward to strutting down that jetway on to a waiting Singapore Airlines flight when they received the nastiest of surprises from the Bureau of Immigration (BI) folks who told them that they weren’t going anywhere.

The eight Justices who issued the majority ruling were all appointed by Arroyo and therefore naturally suspect. The entire escapade seemed so well planned, down to the Arroyos booking themselves on various flights and different airlines just in case they had to alter their itinerary. It seemed as though they really didn’t care where they were going so long as it was head away from the country.

The sad thing is that if the Arroyos had succeeded in leaving, they would be just the latest in a long, long line of high profile individuals whoGloria Arroyo's allies surround her at the NAIAA Airport Tuesday evening as she attempts to board a flight out of the  country evaded Philippine justice by fleeing the country—from Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos in the eighties to Ramona Bautista, a suspect in the murder of her brother, who recently fled to Turkey and has since disappeared.

Each time a fugitive escapes justice the Philippines loses twice: not only is justice not served; the country also looks bad in the eyes of the international community. We salute President Benigno Aquino III and Justice Secretary Leila de Lima for their courageous stand on this issue. It is time Filipinos rallied behind their president and saw to it that the Arroyos don’t leave the country. If Filipinos amass at the airport and block the Arroyos from leaving, it will send a clear message to one and all that Filipinos will no longer stand idly by while those who steal and plunder evade justice by leaving the country. The spirit of EDSA lives on!
