published (PGMA) Prisoner Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s mugshot here
there are conflicting reports on whether these mugshots are authentic or not. DILG chief robredo says they are not but the latest news, also printed here puts the police saying they are authentic.
we are posting the disclaimers and the pictures here for the readers to decide.
as far as we are concerened, we think the mugshots from mugshots.com and the PDI are real for the simple reason that arroyo obviously posed for the pictures. one needs to pose for the pictures to get the full shot and the 2 profiles of left and right, these cannot be photoshopped.
mugshots.com claims the mugshots were released in the internet and they got got hold of it, posted the pictures first, then PDI posted the pictures when PDI got them from another source. a PDI article on the mugshots also confirm that they saw the pics from the website first.
with all these disclaimers aside, if these are authentic pictures, that means someone from the court or police leaked the photos. robredo might be saying they are not real because he needs to answer to the court for having someone from the police leak it to the internet.
enjoy the mugshots just the same.
