Court sheriff arrives at Veterans’ hospital
MANILA, Philippines — Court sheriff Rodelio Buenviaje carrying the order for the transfer of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to the Veterans’ Memorial Medical Center has arrived.
Buenviaje arrived at past 11 a.m. Thursday and went straight to the hospital director’s office.
Earlier on Thursday, the Pasay regional trial court Branch 112 ordered Arroyo’s transfer to the government-run hospital from the St. Luke’s Medical Center in Taguig City where she has been confined since her arrest last November 18 for charges of electoral sabotage.
Arroyo is undergoing treatment for a bone disease.
But the Pasay RTC ordered to have Arroyo transferred to VMMC five days after the receipt of the court order.
