Vice President Jejomar Binay has slammed  President Benigno Aquino III’s ill treatment of  accused plunderers Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile and former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo as proof of his unforgiving stance versus political enemies.
In a statement, Binay said that the move of government prosecutors to block Enrile’s plea for House arrest which was backed up both opposition and administration lawmakers was “cold and callous.”
Enrile  was rushed to the Makati Medical Center (MMC) at around 3 a.m. Thursday after he was reported to be suffering from pneuomonia.His attending physicians at the PNP General Hospital, where the former Senate president has been incarcerated since July for his involvement in pork barrel scam of Janet Lim Napoles, claimed that Enrile has  not been responding to tests and medication.
“It opens government to charges that it lacks compassion for the sick and elderly. It also reinforces the widely-held view of selective justice under the present administration and invites criticisms that political opponents are treated harshly,” said Binay.
Binay said Enrile was  91 years old and that his needs for medical attention for several ailments and medical conditions betrayed his fragile  state.
Binay also made the same pitch for Arroyo who has been detained at the Veterans Memorial Medical Center (VMMC) since 2011 for various plunder charges.
“Compassion should also be given to former President Arroyo. She is also of frail health. Her petition for house arrest is being opposed by government prosecutors and her case has barely moved in court. The fact that the former president is a political opponent should not deprive her of the compassion that should be extended to all detainees similarly situated, regardless of political affiliation,” said Binay.
