the invisible man

first gentleman mike arroyo was a no-show at the plunder trial of erap at the sandiganbayan this morning. fg returned to manila from hong kong last night, presumably to appear as a witness. but only his lawyer showed up - and only to inform the court that he'll be filing a motion to quash subpoena. the lawyer sez fg's testimony is irrelevant as he has nothing to do with erap's plunder case.

the defense had summoned fg as its witness. they want to grill fg on his media interviews where he allegedly said that as early as jan 2000, they had plotted with chavit singson to grab power from erap.

nagplano sila long before to grab power and they were ready to resort to violence to get what mike wanted for his wife and therefore, himself. - atty rene saguisag


masyado namang irrelevant ito. papano naman dapat ma-subpoena dito si first gentleman, si atty arroyo? napakalayo e. - atty jesus santos


fg is scheduled to fly to the us on wednesday and one of his companions would be his son cong mikey. he is expected to remain invisible to the public eye til then. less visible, less criticisms.

i don't think kaya umuwi dito sa pinas ulit si mike arroyo is to attend the plunder trial of erap. probably may mga dokumento dapat ipapirma muna ke gloria para tuluyan malipat ang kanilang ninakaw sa mga mamamayan patungo sa estados unidos.

i wonder why these people are just so greedy. madadala ba nila sa langit lahat ng pera nila?

i wonder when the universe will ever make these people accountable for all their misdoings to their fellowmen and worse, citizens.

i wonder when one will have to cease being vigilant and just let nature take its own course.

hanggang kailan tayo magdudusa dahil sa kasakiman ng iba?

wonderwoman, heto lang ang sa akin:

hangga't mas marami pa rin ang hindi kumikilos para ipagtanggol nya an kanyang sarili (at kapwa naaapi) sa mga gahaman at mapaniil na katulad nila, hindi ito matitigil.

amazing gurl, kamusta ang palamig samalamig?

here's excerpts of the Mike Arroyo interview with Nick Joaquin in the Philippine Graphic (3/5/2001), if you're interested.

(this link btw, was my first blogpost back in 2002.)

john, thanks for the link. yan ang dapat itatanong kay fg ng defense panel, if he showed up.
anon, victor, shiva, ang masasabi ko lang... haaayyy....
isao, palamig samalamig pa rin. better na ang timpla.
