A Dangerous Time for Opposition Figures?

Last month, we heard the news about Bro. Eddie Villanueva’s impending arrest. The warrant order was issued several months earlier, so many became suspicious as to why the arrest would come at such a time when the preacher was actively asking for Arroyo’s resignation. The police did not pick him up, but the preacher said he believed the Arroyo administration was just threatening and harassing him.

Yesterday, another opposition figure, Pastor Boy Saycon, posted a 10,000-peso bail after he was served a warrant of arrest for a libel case filed against him by former Public Estate Authority (PEA) head Ernest Villareal.

Hmmm, Weird. We’re not questioning the process by which justice is served in our country. We’re just a bit curious about the timing of such arrest orders.
