Manila, Philippines – I have never seen in my whole life how an accused person gets to demand how and when she would be transferred by police to the Government’s hospital for house arrest. But that is what exactly happened today as police began the process of transferring Mrs. Arroy from the St. Lukes Medical Center to the VMMC for hospital arrest fr. Tension began when the Arroyos demanded how and when the ex-President should be transferred. It was first reported that Mrs. Arroy demanded?/requested that she be transferred to the VMMC by air but later declined as weather conditions do not allow such method of transfer. Then later on there were reports of postponing the transfer altogether. DOJ Justice Secretary De Lima reminds Mrs. Arroy that she is a detainee and has no right to demand the method and time of her transfer.
Amid heavy rains, GMA’s supporters flocked the streets to show not only their support but their distaste for the transfer and the method of which the Aquino Government has handled the Arroy situation. News of the transfer have been flooding the air waves all day. Below is an exclusive video of Mrs. Arroyo’s transfer to VMMC. Video courtesy of ABS-CBN News
