Former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo vehemently turned down incoming President Rodrigo Duterte’s offer to pardon her because she does not want to accept wrongdoings she did not commit – after spending four years in hospital arrest without fair trial.
As a lawyer, Duterte believes that the former president is not guilty of the cases filed against her. He also advised Arroyo to just get a bail to at least be temporarily released and live normally.
Duterte added that if PGMA’s trials were fair – if it did happen and not politically motivated by just setting media propaganda for staged trials then, she will be out quickly. The court has mo choice but to confess that there were no probable causes on the allegations thrown upon her.
