Let law take its course vs Ligot family - Palace

Manila (22 March) -- Let the law take its course.

Press Secretary and Presidential Spokesperson Ignacio R. Bunye stressed this today as he said that the government has no plan to negotiate with retired Lt. Gen. Jacinto Ligot on an amicable settlement of the ill-gotten wealth case against the Ligot family.

"We would like to state up front there are no negotiations taking place involving the government on this matter, and we shall let the law take its course," Bunye said.

"We owe it to our soldiery and the people to act in their supreme interest, and there can be no bargains in this regard," he added.

Bunye issued the statement in response to published reports saying that Ligot, accused of amassing P135 million unexplained wealth, offered to turn over part of the alleged wealth to the government for the dropping of the charges filed by the Office of the Ombudsman.

Ligot was a former comptroller of the Armed Forces of the Philippines. His legal counsel, Rafael Zialcita, announced earlier that his client was ready to return P21 million of the alleged ill-gotten wealth as part of the amicable settlement with the government. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
