MANILA, Philippines – First Gentleman Jose Miguel Arroyo is urging proponents of the impeachment complaint against Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez to “leave her alone to let her do her job,” his spokesman said.

But Mr. Arroyo will not interfere in the impeachment process since he believes that it should be allowed to take its course, his lawyer, Ruy Rondain said in a phone interview.

“Leave her [Gutierrez] alone to do her job,” Rondain said, quoting the First Gentleman.

Mr. Arroyo and Gutierrez were classmates at the Ateneo Law School. The complaint stemmed from the Ombudsman’s alleged inaction on graft cases, including those involving the First Gentleman.

“He will not interfere,” Rondain said Tuesday evening.
