President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo's statement on the Leave of Absence of DOJ's officials and prosecutors

I'm sure some of you guys are clueless sa nasabing statement ni PGMA sa kautusang leave of absence ng ilang opisyal at prosecutors ng Department of Justice na kung saan di umano'y sangkot sa suhulang naganap para sa pagbabasura sa kaso ng Alabang Boys na ayon na rin sa bintang ng PDEA. So ito ang statement ni PGMA kayo na bahala ang humusga.

Statement of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo: From Malacanang sa Sugbo
Re: “Alabang Boys” case

Today, I instructed Justice Secretary Raul Gonzalez to require leave of absence of all officials and prosecutors of the Department of Justice alleged to have received bribes in exchange for the release of suspected drug dealers from certain rich and influential families.

No one should be spared.

The full force of the government’s powers to act against those that betray public trust should be applied swiftly and unequivocally. More so in this case which involves illegal drugs -- society’s cancer -- on the one hand, and supposed pillars of the justice system on the other.

We should not allow a breach in our determined war against the menace of illegal drugs and against narco-politics on a broader level. We are witness to the tragedy that befell countries that have taken a pause on their war on illegal drugs.

From a public realm, I state this: Our war on drugs should be vigilant and unrelenting. It should not be compromised.

From a personal realm, I state this: I am a mother who is bothered by an alleged conspiracy to let loose on our streets anew pushers of illegal drugs. What if they lurk on my street?
