A delegation of women trooped to the Department of Justice building this morning, November 21, and presented Secretary Leila De Lima with a bouquet of flowers to congratulate her for being the “hero of the moment” in taking the initial steps to bring the former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo to justice.

“We are here to congratulate the Department of Justice Secretary Leila De Lima for successfully blocking the planned escape of the Arroyos. We also want to congratulate Secretary De Lima for standing up to the Supreme Court which was clearly acting in collusion with the Arroyos and assisting them  to flee the country. Secretary De Lima is the hero of the moment.” said Emma Garcia, Spokesperson for Partido Lakas ng Masa, PLM-Women.

“However, we also want to deliver the message that the process of bringing the Arroyos to justice, which started with Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s arrest last Friday, must continue right through to the end.” Garcia added.

“For a start, we don’t think that GMA should be granted any special favors. Isn’t everyone supposed to be equal before the law? Those who robbed the people of their basic democratic right to vote should not be passing their time in posh places. What next? Luxury resorts? The entire  system of corruption  is based on this practice of granting ‘special favors’ to the rich and powerful.

“We are also here to press for plunder charges to be brought against GMA. The stolen wealth of the people must be recovered and put to use for the welfare of the masa.

“Furthermore, we also want President Aquino to spell out his government’s policy on the Arroyo case, so as to dispel any confusion about the commitment of his government to get rid of systemic corruption. Bringing the Arroyo’s to justice will be the most important example of the government’s willingness to implement this promise.

“We must be vigilant to thwart any attempts by the Arroyo camp and their supporters in the Supreme Court at subverting the course of justice, and the people's clamor for full justice. Secretary De Lima, we will stand with you in the pursuit of full justice in the interest of the masa.”, Garcia concluded.


Congratulations, Secretary De Lima, for Blocking the Planned Escape of the Arroyos!
No Special Favors for GMA!
Bring Plunder Charges Against the Arroyos!
President Noynoy Must Spell Out Government Policy on the Arroyos!
The People Demand Full Justice be Served!
