Bail for Gloria?

Chances of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo being granted bail soon are getting stronger with the disappearance of a crucial witness in her electoral sabotage case. Witness Russel Mabang was supposed to corroborate the testimony of star witness and former Maguindanao election supervisor Norie Unas, but he disappeared last week. Court spokesperson Felda Domingo said there is a possibility of a motion for bail, after the court could not see what it was looking for. While electoral sabotage is a non-bailable capital offense, the Revised Rules of Criminal Procedure guarantees suspects the right to post bail if the prosecution cannot prove that its evidence is strong.
