Malacanang apologizes for pullout of Cory’s security

Kris Aquino revealed on showbiz talk show The Buzz on Sunday, that last month, Malacañang pulled out two of Cory Aquino’s security escorts, whom she identified as Mel and Chris.

The military later admitted to have wrongly sent a notice to the former president and that the pullout was a “bureaucratic slip-up.” All former presidents are entitled to security under an executive order issued in 1966 and under General Headquarters Circulars issued in 1988 and 2003.

House Minority Leader Francis Escudero and Taguig-Pateros Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano, however, said the military security detail for them and other opposition leaders had also been pulled out.

Meanwhile, President Arroyo on Monday reportedly apologized to the Aquinos for the pullout of Cory’s security detail before her death.

    hay naku, kahit sino pang banal at santo ang maging president ng Pinas ganun at ganun din ya may rali pa din yan, ganyan talaga tayo mga noypi. si erap nalang ulit iboto natin ay wag na baka gawin nya ulit casino ang palasyo, bro. edie nalang kaya ay wag baka araw araw may prayer rally sa palasyo, c miriam santiago nalang wag na baka maging kabinete nya galing ng Mandaluyong sa loob ahh.

    Si Willie for President gusto nyo ba un ha…tingin ko maganda un mga secretary cabinet ung mga ASF Dancer tapos ung bra at panty lang ang suot, tapos ung pondo kaya niya ilagay dalawa number 0 at 2, kapag epal ang kabinete nya at pasikat tatanggalin nya.

    Tingin ko kung si Willie magiging presidente hihigitan pa nya ang katarayan ni Gloria

    When you say “pagbigay ng paggalang” for giving a security escort, so why do you say unrespectful comments to our president (and ex-president)?

    “All former presidents are entitled to security under an executive order issued in 1966 and under General Headquarters Circulars issued in 1988 and 2003.” – I hope this law will be change. I think all of our ex-presidents have their budget for their own security. They don’t need our taxes for their bodyguards. Then instead, put that budget to a project for “masang pilipino”.

    ONE LOVE!

    to wandaranarks: and sana wag gamitin ni gloria ang kapangyarihan nya para manalo lahat ng mga galamay nya at maghari ang corruption nya at ng kanyang pamilya.

    before you defend gloria, dapat mahatulan muna sya ng bitay sa kasalanan nya sa bayan.
