MANILA, Philippines — The Sandiganbayan again deferred the arraignment for plunder of former Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) Chairman Manoling Morato.

Morato is one of the co-accused, along with former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, in the alleged P366 million PCSO intelligence fund scam.

During Thursday’s hearing, Morato’s lawyer said they have filed a petition for certiorari before the Supreme Court and asked that it issue a temporary restraining order on the Sandiganbayan proceedings.

Morato also appeared before the court on a wheelchair and face mask.

The anti-graft court rescheduled the arraignment on December 3.

Morato also asked the court that he be allowed to pass by his house Thursday but the court denied the request.

Morato was supposed to be arraigned last October but was deferred after he was taken to the hospital.

Morato was allowed by the Sandiganbayan to be under hospital arrest at St. Lukes Hospital in Quezon City under the supervision of the National Bureau of Investigation.

The anti-graft court granted Morato’s motion last month after he submitted a medical certificate from his attending physician Dr. Maria Adelaide Iboleon-Dy.

Based on the Medical Certificate dated October 25, Morato underwent an open heart surgery, triple bypass with aortic valve replacement with a prosthetic valve on October 22.

    There is an individual who frequents in the comment section of PDI articles.

    She uses the name: Blainz

    We just found out that she is the mistress of a certain Mr. Jose Valencia.

    This Mr. Valencia is an Akbayan supporter who dabbles as a hustler and a con man in Greece.

    What?  Deferred again?  Why keep on giving this corrupt gay that special privilege?  He’s faking illness like what his former boss does.

      • Bunot-Supo

         Morato would not undergo that surgery if he was not arrested. Wheelchair is the title of all his treatments. Aortic valve, prosthetic valve, gate valve, angle valve, etc.  You’re so naive.

  • JuanTamadachi

    The wheel chair act popularized by joc joc Bolate and Dorovo, among others, has been terribly overused to the point that it is now sickening for us spectators.

    Off With Their Heads!

  • Don Dee

    Ibalik and death penalty! Si Manoling makulong sa NBP is NOT A PUNISHMENT! He will continually drop the soap on purpose!
