My poor recall of this part of Philippine History…
Few years ago… GMA was proud to be this…
Former Pres. Corazon Aquino succumbed to colon cancer. During her funeral march, several people have been calling out for Sen. Noynoy Aquino to run as President in the next year’s election.
Sen Noynoy Aquino took some time to reflect whether to accept people’s encouragement.
Sen. Noynoy Aquino filed his certificate of candidacy as President of the Republic of the Philippines under the Liberal Party.
Noynoy Aquino emerged as a popular president with a landslide victory (redundant?).
President Noynoy Aquino announces the creation of TRUTH Commission that shall be responsible for the investigation of misdeeds of the past administration.
(Then I dont remember the dates that followed)
Supreme Court junks the Truth Commission.
Ombudsman Merciditas Gutierrez was impeached.
(BIR and DOJ joint committee conducting investigation on Electoral Sabotage – according to Sec DeLima)
PNoy delivered his 2nd SONA. GMA didnt attend the SONA, instead went to her hometown on the same day to inspect. Later in the day she was admitted at St. Lukes Hospital due to nape pains and hypertension? Then GMA attended Sen Miriam’s Wedding.
But during the recessional… look at GMA at the upper left corner of the photo: (Yes, no neck brace!)
As days passed by, GMA was diagnosed to have some bone spurs in her neck. She required wearing neck braces and underwent neck surgery.
Few days after GMA’s admission at St. Luke’s Hospital, this picture was released…
The neck surgery of GMA had complication, either and endocrine problem with calcium imbalance or infection. It was the former later that was the main consideration.
Series of scams have been coming out.
PCSO scandal broke out. Allegedly, a bishop sought a vehicle as a gift from GMA.
PCSO Charity fund was channeled through other purposes, was that about 700M?
PAGCOR 300M also went… where?
Anomalous purchase of helicopters by the PNP where Mike Arroyo’s name was dragged.
One of the Ampatuans testified vs GMA about election rigging in his region during 2007.
Mikey Arroyo and wife slapped with tax evasion charges by BIR.
November 25, 2011:
Leila deLima enforced that they not be allowed to leave the country.
Reactions poured out on why did the DOJ secretary defy the SC ruling.
On the other hand, why did the SC hastily issued TRO without hearing govt side.
Saturday, GMA had her booking (finger printing, mugshots taken by the police at SLH).
Prosecution moves for GMA transfer to a detention cell.
