Lawmaker hospitalized in Russia

MANILA, Philippines — Ako Bicol party-list Rep. Alfredo Garbin was hospitalized in Russia for two weeks last month.

Garbin, who was supposed to attend a parliamentary conference in St. Petersburg, was brought to a hospital upon his arrival in the city after he suffered from stomach pain and vomiting during his flight from Dubai.

“The doctors said that my case was life threatening…In Russia it’s their medical policy and they will not let you out of the hospital if you’re diagnosed with something that can cause immediate death,” Garbin said.

He said the operation removed a “severe blockage in the intestine that was related to my operation when I was nine years old.” He said he paid for the hospital bill.
