Gloria Arroyo cites hospital ‘distress’ in bail plea
Arroyo added there was a double standard when the court granted the petitions for bail of her co-accused in the plunder of charity funds.
Plunder, her lawyer argued, involved conspiracy. This would mean that the act of one is the act of all.
Lawyer Ticman said the "settled doctrine" on the nature of conspiracy was violated when all other accused were granted bail except his client.
"Those similarly situated must be similarly dealt with. Why the refusal to allow bail to accused PGMA?" her motion read. – Rappler.com
