Filipino supporters of former Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo shout ‘not guilty’ in a rally outside the anti-graft court office in eastern Manila on Thursday. A Philippine anti-graft court ordered the arrest of former president Arroyo on plunder charges for allegedly conspiring to loot nearly nine million US dollars in state lottery funds. The arrest warrant is the third to be issued against the 65-year-old former leader, who was released on bail in July after spending eight months in detention at a military-run hospital on electoral fraud charges. Plunder, or the crime of amassing ill-gotten wealth worth at least 50 million pesos (1.2 million US dollars), is an offence ineligible for bail and punishable by life imprisonment.
