GMA seeks house arrest in Lubao

Pampanga Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo

MANILA, Philippines - Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo asked the Sandiganbayan yesterday to consider placing her under house arrest at her other home in Lubao, Pampanga.

In a supplemental motion filed before the anti-graft court’s First Division, Arroyo’s lawyers said the former president’s residence in Pampanga is around 200 meters from the municipal police station.

“If, for any reason, the Honorable Court is not disposed to grant her request for house arrest at La Vista Subdivision, President Arroyo respectfully asks that the Honorable Court consider granting her house arrest at her provincial residence at Purok 6, San Nicolas 1, Lubao, Pampanga,” Arroyo’s petition stated.

The former president’s lawyers led by Laurence Hector Arroyo added that the provincial residence, with an area of around 500 square meters, has a perimeter fence.

“Lubao is home to President Arroyo,” the supplemental motion stated.

The Sandiganbayan gave prosecutors 15 days to comment on her petition for house arrest at yesterday’s hearing.
