In a report on Enrile’s recent transfer to Makati Medical Center (MMC), his lawyers said Enrile’s condition did not get better at the PNP General Hospital because he has been exposed to patients with serious illnesses.
“Enrile while detained at the PNP General Hospital contracted an additional illness from within the hospital itself. Thus, Enrile did not get any better while detained at the PNP General Hospital. This is very likely considering his weak immune system on account of his age and other known ailments,” the report said.
His allies in the House of Representatives and Senate have asked the Sandiganbayan to allow him to be placed under house arrest once he recovers from pneumonia to improve his health.
The 91-year-old senator has been under hospital detention in connection with the plunder and graft charges filed against him over the pork barrel scam.
