This decision of the DOJ sparked controversy, most law experts say De Lima's move against the Arroyo's are unconstitutional, and she can be contempt. Now the Arroyo camp is filing an impeachment complaint against De Lima and President Aquino, the basis for complaint is they disobeyed the constitution.
Leila De Lima's move was very unconstitutional it was the first time i saw the DOJ disobeyed the highest Court of the Philippines, but most Filipino's say it was the right decision.
Sometimes we gotta disobey the Justice System just to have Justice.
But for me, this is an example that the Philippine constitution are biased!
A constitution that only protects the rich and the powerful
A constitution that only Jails the poor or those who cannot afford a lawyer
A constitution that can be manipulated
A constitution that favors Politicians
I am not a law expert or an economist but I know what the difference between right and wrong, damn these lawyers they are making the definitions of right and wrong very complicated and these couples should not leave the country, because there are allegation of corruption

WHEN THERE IS SMOKE THERE IS FIRE
All of these allegations about the Arroyo's are still haven't been proven
Most of these are exposed by whistle blowers. But no case has been filed
Some of the whistle blowers are dead, some are hiding and some are missing.
Accusing someone like Gloria Arroyo is like digging your own grave,
These Allegations are not yet been proven, but... why would these people sacrifice their own life and family just for exposing the truth, are they trying to be a hero?... maybe no maybe yes... because there are no justice in this god forsaken country.
Only the rich and powerful are protected by the constitution not the common Filipino.
And why would Mrs. Arroyo seek medical treatment abroad,when she has all the money she can have and get the best doctor in the country.
If Mrs Arroyo doesn't come back, well... another epic fail for this government.
Whoever wins between DOJ and SC, it doesn't matter because... It is always the Filipino people who looses.
