Lawyers representing former president Gloria Macapagal Arroyo on Friday, November 25, reportedly withdrew their earlier motion for a hospital arrest to pave way for a filing of a motion for a house arrest.

Radio and television reports said Arroyo’s camp also requested the Pasay Regional Trial Court to keep her medical records private.

Meanwhile, the Commission on Elections formally asked the court to immediately transfer the former president to a detention facility following a statement from the defense that Mrs. Arroyo’s health condition has improved.

According to reports, the counsel for defense conceded that the former president is already “physically fit” and that “there is no point to hear” the statements of her doctors.

Arroyo’s spokesperson, Atty. Raul Lambino, in an interview on ANC said the former president “wants to go home.”
