Gloria camp seeks SC action vs. DOJ

Representatives of five civil society groups in Negros Occidental and the Liberal Party of Bacolod yesterday issued statements of support for Justice Secretary Leila de Lima for what they call her “courageous stand” in preventing former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and her husband, Mike, from leaving the country “to seek medical treatment abroad.”

Rep. Alfredo Abelardo Benitez (Neg. Occ., 3rd District) yesterday said any attempt in the House by Arroyo allies to impeach President Benigno Aquino III over the hold departure order on the Arroyos will not prosper.

The camp of Arroyo, now Pampanga second district representative, yesterday filed a petition before the Supreme Court seeking the issuance of a cease and desist order to stop the Department of Justice and the Bureau of Immigration from preventing her from leaving the country to seek medical treatment for her bone disease, and to cite De Lima for contempt.moremoremore
