Voting 11-4, the Supreme Court has thrown out the plunder case filed against former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in connection to the alleged misuse of Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office funds amounting to P366 million.

Speaking to ABS-CBN News, Arroyo lawyer Raul Lambino said the SC has effectively paved the way for Arroyo’s release by granting their camp’s petition for demurrer for evidence.
