Sen. Jinggoy wants medical examination due to shoulder pain
Senator Jinggoy Estrada has submitted an urgent motion before the fifth division of the Sandiganbayan asking for medical examination
due to “unbearable” pain in his left shoulder.
Estrada wants to have the exam taken at the Cardinal Santos Memorial Hospital in Greenhills.
The senator said the pain has been getting stronger and has become unbearable.
The fifth division had permitted Estrada, who is currently detained at the Philippine National Police Custodial Center for his supposed role in the pork barrel scam, to undergo physical therapy in the same hospital back in November.
Estrada added that he is expperiencing pain in his shoulder.
The anti-graft court on Monday proclaimed its decision to freeze the assets of Estrada worth P183 million, which constitutes the money he allegedly got from his pork barrel.
In a resolution, the anti-graft court said: “As [Estrada camp] has not filed a counterbond and his arguments herein are unmeritorious, there is therefore no compelling reason to lift the attachment while the main case is still pending.”
