Resolve cases vs Honasan, Estrada, Ang quickly - Arroyo

Quezon City (24 November) -- PRESIDENT Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo said on Thursday she wants the cases against Charlie "Atong" Ang, former president Joseph Estrada, former senator Gregorio "Gringo" Honasan and alleged military mutineers to be resolved faster because of their impact on internal and economic security.

Addressing participants of the national forum on internal security and counterterrorism in Clark, Pampanga, Arroyo called on concerned officials to ensure a "forward momentum" on these cases.

"There are many important things, especially related to internal security and the security of our economy that the officials have to push forward faster. One: the cases of Atong Ang, Honasan, Estrada and the mutineers," she said.

Estrada, detained in Tanay, Rizal and awaiting the verdict on a plunder case against him, remains the acknowledged leader of the political opposition.

Honasan was arrested last week in Quezon City on coup d'etat and rebellion charges for his alleged links to a military mutiny in 2003 and an alleged coup attempt in February this year.

Officers involved in both incidents are also detained ands facing charges.

Ang, a former friend of Estrada, was extradited from the United States early this month. He is Estrada's co-accused in the plunder case. (PIA) [top]
