Jose Rodel Clapano of The Philippine Star reports that in a Monday (August 27) interview former president Joseph "Erap" Estrada said that "former president and current Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo should be allowed to seek medical treatment abroad."

Jose Rodel Clapano of The Philippine Star reports that in a Monday (August 27) interview former president Joseph "Erap" Estrada said that "former president and current Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo should be allowed to seek medical treatment abroad."

 

The report noted: "Estrada cited his own case when the Sandiganbayan special division allowed him to undergo knee surgery in Hong Kong. On December 27, 2004 his personal doctor, Christopher Mow, flew to Hong Kong to do the surgery." Estrada added that "the International Police (Interpol) could track down Arroyo should she try to hide abroad as feared by some people in the Aquino administration."

 

The report quoted Estrada, who said, "Like (Arroyo), I had titanium implanted in both knees. In GMA's case, she had titanium in her cervix spine that loosened up. I could just imagine the pain she's going through now, like when she reportedly choked even while just eating." Then, in half-jest, Estrada quipped: "It's a very painful procedure, especially after the effect of anesthesia wore off. I called on all the saints, but none of them answered."
