The cases against Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo

The Supreme Court on Tuesday, in a vote of 11-4, dismissed the plunder case against former President and re-elected Pampanga 2nd District Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo over the alleged misuse of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office's P366-million intelligence funds.

Arroyo elevated her case to the Supreme Court after the Sandiganbayan rejected her plea for bail in 2015.

The case was among the charges filed against Arroyo during the term of her successor, former President Benigno Aquino III.
