“The Senate has better things to do. Bring it to court. It is only there that the “real” truth can be brought out, not in the Senate which is doing the investigation in aid of grand-standing” – Press Secretary Ignacio Bunye.
Former Senator Jovito Salonga, heading the groups Kilosbayan and Bantay Katarungan accepted the dare and filed plunder and graft charges against Mrs. Arroyo before the Office of the Ombudsman. They know they can’t secure a conviction between now and 2010, when she leaves office (Kung aalis!) and sheds her immunity. But there is nothing in the law that prevents the Ombudsman from investigating their complaint now.
