Abalos supporters gather at Pasay court

/ 08:41 AM January 09, 2012

MANILA, Philippines – Clad in white shirts, over 100 supporters of former Commission on Elections chairman Benjamin Abalos have lined the periphery of Pasay City Hall in an apparent show of solidarity as he goes to court today, Monday, over his purported involvement in the irregularities during the 2007 elections.

Some supporters who declined to be named said they came on their own volition to support Abalos, a former Mandaluyong mayor. They brought placards and signs containing messages of support.


The court is set to hear Abalos’ motion to set bail for electoral sabotage, a non-bailable offense, and three other motions.

The same court is also scheduled to hear motions filed by former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
