MANILA, Philippines — President Benigno Aquino III on Monday expressed disapproval over the motion to have former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo under house arrest, instead of remaining in detention in a hospital.

Aquino said the case against Arroyo, who faces charges for electoral fraud, is a grave matter, and her being under hospital arrest is already a "privilege."

Hear what the president has to say about Arroyo's detention and case, as well as the Supreme Court's grant for Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile's bail petition.
