Bayan Muna Rep. Teodoro Casiño testified on Wednesday in the trial of former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo for the graft case in connection with the botched National Broadband Network (NBN)-ZTE deal.

But Arroyo's lawyer, Atty. Jose Flaminiano, said the lawmaker's testimony was just pure hearsay since he had no personal knowledge on the alleged bribery surrounding the $329-million contract. -- Top Story, ANC, November 7, 2012
