MANILA, Philippines - The promise of Arroyo lawyer Ferdinand Topacio to cut his “ball” off will not be relevant to the country in need of justice from the Arroyos, Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said.

He said Topacio’s statement is irrelevant. He added only Topacio’s wife will suffer.
 
In an interview with ANC on Wednesday, Topacio vowed to have one of his testicles chopped off if his clients will not return as promised.
 
Topacio said: “I’m willing to do the worst. Ipapatanggal ko itlog ko pag di bumalik ang mga Arroyo.”
 
He said he would not have accepted the case of the Arroyos if he knew they were not sincere. “I’m a good judge of character,” he claimed.
 
The comments generated many comments from netizens. 
 
The hashtag #itlognitopacio has become a top trending topic in Twitter in the country, beating even the arrival of US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. - from a report by Willard Cheng, ABS-CBN News
