Philippine ex-leader Aquino charged in  budget caseFormer Philippine President Benigno Aquino has been indicted in a $1.35 billion criminal case over his failure to get congressional approval to use state funds to jump-start major government projects, authorities said Wednesday. The money became a source of controversy during Aquino’s term from 2010-2016, with critics claiming he used it to barter for favours from legislators. The charge, filed last week by a special anti-corruption prosecutor but only made public Wednesday, alleges that Aquino violated the constitution’s separation of powers.
