Former First Gentleman Mike Arroyo in Germany for medical check-up

GMA News Online reports that the former First Gentleman flew to Germany on Sunday night for a medical check-up. He left aboard a Cathay Pacific CX-902 flight en route to Munich via Hong Kong. He said he would also look for a doctor specializing in stem cell research during his trip. "[I] may need it for PGMA [President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo] and me," he explained before boarding the plane.

Is he just a jetsetting health nut?

 

GMA News Online reports that the former First Gentleman flew to Germany on Sunday night for a medical check-up. He left aboard a Cathay Pacific CX-902 flight en route to Munich via Hong Kong. He said he would also look for a doctor specializing in stem cell research during his trip. "[I] may need it for PGMA (President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo) and me," he explained before boarding the plane.

 

It has been more than two weeks since the Department of Justice (DOJ) removed Arroyo from its watch list. This was done after the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee said it would no longer summon him to testify on the P104.9-million worth of used helicopters sold as brand new to the Philippine National Police in 2009.

 

GMA News Online, citing a Bombo Radyo report, said Arroyo is expected to return to the Philippines after a week.

Arroyo has also been linked to several irregularities during the term of his wife, former President and now Pampanga Rep. Gloria Arroyo. He underwent aortic aneurysm in 2007. He was also hospitalized last April. In August, he went to Hong Kong for a check-up of the same condition.
