Akbayan party spokesperson Risa Hontiveros on Friday branded Ang Galing Partylist Representative Juan Miguel Arroyo as the “Pinoy Al Capone” whom she said should be brought to his own “Alcatraz." This was after the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) filed a P 73.85 million tax evasion case against Arroyo and his wife Angela in the Department of Justice.
“We welcome this initiative on the part of the government. Kaya maraming naghihirap at nagugutom dahil sa mga taong katulad nina Mikey na nagnanakaw sa kaban ng bayan sa hindi pagbabayad ng buwis. I hope Mikey “Al Capone” Arroyo’s tax evasion exploits will lead him to his own “Alcatraz,” Hontiveros said.
