Fifteen years later, soldiers who participated in the Oakwood mutiny have no regrets over their actions, former Marine Captain and now Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano said Friday.

On July 27, 2003, Alejano, together with some 300 soldiers, took over the then Oakwood Premier in Makati City to protest alleged corruption in the administration of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and call for her resignation.

"No regrets, it was worth it, because before we decided to do it, we exactly knew the consequences of our actions," Alejano told ANC on Friday.

Alejano added that the coup d'etat also paved the way for reforms in the administration of Arroyo, who now serves as House Speaker.
