The Sandiganbayan’s Fifth Division has allowed Jose Miguel Arroyo, husband of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, to travel to Europe for possible stem cell treatment.
Mr. Arroyo, a lawyer, had to seek the permission of the anti-graft court since he has a pending graft charge over alleged overpricing of five R44 Raven 1 Robinsons helicopters.
The husband of the country’s former leader, who is under hospital arrest over a P366-million plunder charge, pushed for a trip to Munich, Germany, to look for a stem cell specialist for various afflictions from September 21 to October 2.
Further, Mr. Arroyo was also allowed by the Sandiganbayan to have a vacation in Milan, Italy, from October 2 to October 4.
During his Munich stop, he will be billeted at Hilton Hotel in Rossenheimer Strasse 15, 816617.
For the Italy trip, Mr. Arroyo will be staying at the Four Seasons Hotel Milano in Via Gesy, 6/8, 20121.
