Arroyo camp warns De Lima

Manila, Philippines – The camp of former President now Pampanga Rep. Gloria M. Arroyo warned Department of Justice (DoJ) Secretary Leila de Lima yesterday that she will be responsible for the adverse developments on the health of Mrs. Arroyo if she continues to further delay the approval of her request to travel abroad for treatment.

“If something happens to the health of former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, only Justice Secretary Leila de Lima is to blame and no one else,” a member of the legal team of former First Gentleman Atty. Jose Miguel “Mike” T. Arroyo said.

He said it is inhumane for De Lima to continue refusing to allow Mrs. Arroyo to seek treatment abroad, and that she was in no position to assess whether or not her medical condition indeed does not require her to undergo treatment abroad. (David Cagahastian)
