Mike Arroyo drops all libel cases vs media

FIRST Gentleman Jose Miguel Arroyo on Thursday ordered his lawyers to withdraw all of his libel cases filed against members of the Philippine media.

Presidential Spokesman Ignacio Bunye on Thursday read Arroyo's statement before members of the Malacañang Press Corps, saying it was the First Gentleman's "gesture for peace."

The announcement came the same day that World Press Freedom Day was being celebrated. (The rest at GMA News TV. Photo from the BBC)

Hmmm...a hospital epiphany, perhaps? Or mega-PR gimmick? Whatever it is, pakibaba ang mga kilay, people. Mag-thank you nalang.
