Palace denies hand in Ping’s acquittal

PNS — MALACAÑANG did not have a hand in the lifting of the arrest warrant against Sen. Panfilo Lacson in the Dacer-Corbito double murder case.

Thus emphasized Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda.

Lacierda said that Malacañang certainly did not meddle in the appellate ruling which cleared Lacson of involvement in the double-murder case and voided the arrest warrant against him.

Also, Lacierda said that he is clueless on whether or not Lacson would be offered a Cabinet position since he is an ally of the Aquino administration pointing out that the ruling is not yet final and executory.
