Arroyo Cabinet members planning to join the official family of President-apparent Sen. Benigno Simeon “Noynoy” Aquino III should spill the beans on their former boss’ abuses, a militant group said Wednesday.
The Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan) stressed the need to have Mrs. Arroyo investigated and charged for various misdeeds during her nine-year reign.
“It is not surprising that former Arroyo officials will be seeking new appointments under the Aquino administration, especially after their involvement in the Aquino campaign. Some of them appear to be determined to get back their previous posts. These former Arroyo officials however should first make a full accounting of their role in the previous regime. They should at least be willing to testify against the outgoing president,” said Bayan secretary general Renato Reyes Jr., in an article on the Bayan website (www.bayan.ph).
