After being acquitted of her plunder case, former president Gloria Arroyo was seen in a photo with her lawyer Raul Lambino online without her neck brace and wheelchair.
The photo was shot at the Veteran’s Memorial Medical Center (VMMC) in Quezon City. Several hours after the photo was taken and uploaded online, it has received both negative and positive comments.
“The neck brace is gone. Wheelchair gone. What else is new in this benighted country? The triumph of evil all over again. Marcoses, arroyos. Enrile’s. Revillas. Estradas. Binays. . .”
“Nawala ang neck collar brace… Naging healthy agad… Dapat ‘yan ang pag-aaralan ng mga scientist kung pano nakakapagaling ang sakit paglabas ng kulungan at pag ikukulong biglang magkakasakit at upo sa wheelchair.”
“I hated GMA but I respect the supreme court ruling. Lack of evidence naman pala. Ang tagal din siya nadetain ah.”
The Supreme Court voted 11-4, 11 in favor of dismissing the case, and 4 not in favor of dismissing the case.
How about you? What can you say about her suddenly showing up without the usual wheelchair and neck brace?
