PNP insisting Arroyo travel by chopper–spokesperson
MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine National Police is insisting that former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo travel by air, her spokesman said Friday.
In a press briefing Friday, Elena Bautista-Horn said a helicopter that would take Arroyo to the Veterans Memorial Medical Center from St. Luke’s Medical Center in Taguig has arrived.
But the Arroyo camp wants land travel as agreed upon in their three meetings with the PNP, Horn said.
Horn said that Arroyo was awake since 5 a.m. waiting to be picked up. She is feeling stressed from waiting.
Elena said they hoped that the PNP was not delaying the VMMC transfer as a ploy to allow anti-Arroyo rallyists to come out to stage their own mass action.
