Philippine govt to sue self-proclaimed witness of Arroyo bribery

    MANILA, Aug. 2 (Xinhuanet) -- The Philippine government said Tuesday a self-proclaimed witness in the alleged pay-off of Commission on Elections officials in the presence of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo could face legal charges for his lies and ill-motives.

    Presidential political adviser Gabriel Claudio said the lawyers of Arroyo would study the statements made by Michael Angelo Zuce, the self-proclaimed witness, and file appropriate case in due time.

    He did not say, however, what the possible charges would be.

    Earlier Tuesday, former presidential liaison officer for political affairs Joey Rufino denied the claims of Zuce, saying the allegations against Arroyo were false.

    The president herself said people were being paid to testify against her. She said some individuals in need of money could easily fabricate testimonies. Enditem
