An anti-corruption nun has welcomed the decision of a special government panel looking into purported election anomalies to summon ex-president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and more than 30 others to appear next month at the department of justice. The move encourages the anti-corruption efforts of women Religious, said Benedictine Sister Mary John Mananzan yesterday. Whistle-blowers, which the Association of Major Religious Superiors of the Philippines (AMRSP) has focused anti-corruption efforts on, "will think of coming out, and be courageous in exposing graft and corruption," once they see action from the government such as the recent decision to apprehend accused election cheaters, she said. A report from the panel recommended probing Arroyo “for giving direct instructions” to rig election results in Maguindanao, southern Philippines.
