Sen. Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada is asking the Sandiganbayan permit him to undergo medical examination at Cardinal Santos Medical Center in San Juan City (Metro Manila) this week as he complained that the pain in his left shoulder has become unbearable. Estrada, who is detained at the Philippine National Police (PNP) Custodial Center in Camp Crame in connection with a P183-million plunder charge, asked the anti-graft court to allow him to be taken the hospital with the usual custodial security measures charged to his expense. The Sandiganbayan had allowed him to undergo four therapy sessions last year because of the same medical condition concerning his left shoulder. But prosecutors doubted his ailment. In a four-page opposition filed on Tuesday, prosecutors asked the court to deny Estrada’s request for lack of merit. “With due respect, to the mind of the prosecution, if accused Estrada is really suffering from an unbearable pain on his left shoulder, he should have requested that he be brought to the PNP General Hospital,” they said.
