A counsel for Pampanga Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, lawyer Raul Lambino, is coming home shortly after a trip to Europe where he sought international support for the embattled former President.

“He feels very happy so I think it was mission accomplished, what he set out to do,” Ferdinand Topacio, another Arroyo family lawyer, told reporters Sunday at St. Luke’s Medical Center in Taguig City, where Arroyo is held under hospital arrest.


He said Lambino was returning home on or about December 10.

Topacio said Lambino left for Europe four days ago to bring to the attention of the international community the alleged harassment of Arroyo by the present administration.


Lambino met with the Centrist Democrat International, a political group dedicated to promoting Christian democracy, he said.

Topacio said he talked to Lambino on the phone upon Arroyo’s instruction but declined to elaborate on what Lambino said. “I will leave that to Attorney Lambino to announce when he comes,” he said. Kristine Felisse Mangunay
