• Court okays Mike Arroyo’s travel


    The Sandiganbayan’s Fifth Division has granted Jose Miguel Arroyo – husband of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo – permission to travel to Japan January 30-February 5 and Hong Kong February 5-8. Arroyo was also ordered to advise the court of his arrival personally and formally in writing, along with a photocopy of his passports attached. Should he fail to return as stated in his request, trial of his case will proceed as scheduled in his absence, the court said. The Sandiganbayan’s Fifth Division enforces a hold departure order (HDO) against Arroyo in connection with a graft charge filed against him, former police chief Jesus Verzosa and several others in connection with the P34.63-million helicopter scam.
