Statement of Secretary Ignacio R. Bunye Re: Former Senator Honasan
Manila (7 May) -- Former Senator Honasan sought an audience with the President in connection with the rebellion case against him which is now being reviewed by the DOJ.
Reports which came out in the media had indicated that his alleged participation would be upgraded to leader, making his case non-bailable.
The meeting was arranged through the intercession of Senator Juan Ponce Enrile, and took place at around 10 p.m. Thursday. Kim Honasan, his son, accompanied him to the meeting.
Honasan disavowed any intentions to overthrow the government and he also said so in a letter which he personally handed the President. (OPS) [top]
