Smart, Globe deny role in Hello Garci caper; AFP hit over cellphone signal jamming

Three Senate committees yesterday reopened the case of the Hello Garci audiotaped conversations between President Arroyo and Comelec commissioner Virgilio Garcillano. Pro-Arroyo solons are itching to kill the proceedings.

In a related development, telcos Smart and Globe have denied any role in the Hello Garci wiretaps, despite the statements of former military spy-turned-whistleblower Vidal Doble who the AFP has threatened with lawsuits.

Elsewhere, former Marine commandant Major Gen. Renato Miranda accused the military of jamming or cutting of cellphone signals near the detention facility where they are being held.
