ABS-CBNNews.com reports that President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III said that he is backing the decision of Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary Leila de Lima not to allow former President Glora Macapagal-Arroyo to seek medical treatment abroad.As an alternative, he said that his administration is "willing to bring in foreign medical experts-and foot the bill-to attend to Arroyo’s medical needs. "

 

In a televised statement yesterday, November 9, Aquino said: "Bilang pagkilala ng karapatan ni Ginang Arroyo na personal na pumili ng espesyalista at doktor na magbigay-lunas sa kanya, maaari tayong magpapunta dito ng mga espesyalista o manggagamot mula sa alin mang panig ng mundo upang magsagawa ng kanyang eksaminasyong medikal. Kung kinakailangan, handa nating sagutin ang mga tungkuling pinansyal sa pagpapagamot ni Ginang Arroyo. Gagawin natin ito upang matiyak ang pagharap ng sinumang akusado sa ating hukuman at manaig ang katarungan sa atin pong bansa (We recognize Arroyo’s right to see the specialists of her choice. As such, we are willing to bring them to the Philippines. If needed, we can foot the bill for their services. We’ll do this to show that we treat those who are accused fairly and to ensure that justice prevails in the country)."

 

Aquino also emphasized that Arroyo must face the non-bailable charge of electoral sabotage and finally put "closure" to allegations of fraud during the 2007 elections. He reiterated that she has to personally appear in her arraignment if the case reaches that point. Otherwise, it would not proceed. The case is still in the preliminary investigation stage.
