Manuel ‘Manny’ Villar Jr.

Villar says he won’t let Arroyo off the hook that easily.

Villar added that he “will not lift a finger in defending (Arroyo).” (ABS-CBNNEWS.COM).

But at the height of the “Hello, Garci” scandal in 2005, while his NP lieutenants were in the forefront of the probe, Villar chose to kept silent on the ouster moves against Arroyo. Villar eventually did not take any position. (ABS-CBNNEWS.COM)
