Ex-Pres. Gloria Arroyo arrives at new detention site


UPDATED 4:16 p.m. - Former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo left the St. Luke's Medical Center (SLMC) in Taguig City past 3:00 p.m. Friday, and arrived at the Veterans Memorial Medical Center (VMMC) in Quezon City after an hour of travel to serve her hospital arrest.

The former Chief Executive, now representing Pampanga's second district in the House of Representatives, rode a coaster van that was part of a seven-vehicle convoy, a report on GMA News TV said.

A Pasay City court had ordered the transfer of Mrs. Arroyo, who was arrested last month after getting charged with fraud in the 2007 elections, to the VMMC by Friday. But her camp had questioned a government plan to airlift the former leader, saying it was not consulted.

Reports indicated that Mrs. Arroyo was ready to be transferred to VMMC as early as 6 a.m.
