TWO divisions of the Sandiganbayan gave Juan “Mike” Miguel Arroyo the go signal to visit Japan and Hong Kong to tour his children and grandchildren.
The anti-graft court’s fourth and fifth divisions allowed Arroyo to fly abroad from June 1 to 9 to spend time with his family. He was ordered to post travel bonds totalling P120,000.
Arroyo is facing graft charges at the fourth division in connection with the botched $329-million national broadband network deal. He has another graft case at the Fifth Division over the alleged sale of a used helicopter which he passed on as brand new to the Philippine National Police for P34 million.
