Sindac said PNP doctors found out that the senator has a heart problem and needed medical attention.

Sindac said Enrile has hypertension, vertigo, anemia, and high cholesterol level.

In a letter addressed to Director Benjamin Magalong of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG), the camp of Enrile requested from the PNP that his mug shots be “kept confidential.”
