Arroyo enters no plea in plunder case

2012-10-29 10:00

Manila - A Philippine court entered a not guilty plea for former president Gloria  Arroyo on a plunder charge on Monday, a case that will be a litmus test of the government's ability to tackle entrenched corruption in the poor Southeast Asian nation.

Arroyo, aged 65, who ruled the Philippines from 2001 to 2010, sat silently beside her family and lawyer during the arraignment hearing while charges that she had misused state lottery funds from 2008 to 2010 were read to the court.

She could face a maximum sentence of life in prison if she is sent to trial and found guilty.

The court entered the not guilty plea on her behalf after she and her lawyer did not respond to the charge. Arroyo, wearing a pink shawl over a light pink dress and a neck brace, arrived in court in a wheelchair, smiling for photographers. She had two spinal operations two years ago.

"We do not recognise the court's jurisdiction over this case," Raul Lambino, a lawyer and spokesperson for the former president, said. Lambino, also a member of the lower house of Congress, said the case was "political persecution".

"She is sad over this case," he said, adding that Arroyo has a petition before the Supreme Court questioning the validity of the case and the court's jurisdiction to hear it.

Electoral fraud

Prosecutors accuse Arroyo and nine officials from the state lottery agency of misusing around $8.88m in sweepstakes funds, accusing them of transferring the money to an intelligence fund for her use.

Arroyo also faces separate corruption charges for her alleged role in the misuse of public funds and kickbacks from a multi-million telecommunications deal with China's ZTE Corporation. The public broadband deal was aborted in 2007. She is also on trial for electoral fraud.
