Zaldy Ampatuan needs hospitalization

A government doctor has recommended that former ARMM Zaldy Ampatuan be brought to a hospital immediately for medical examinations.

In a July 12 memorandum, Chief Inspector Agnes Aglipay, head of the Health Service Unit of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology-National Capital Region, recommended that Ampatuan must undergo diagnostics in a “hospital setting.”

Aglipay said the 43-year-old murder suspect needs to “be brought to the nearest government hospital on an outpatient basis or depending on the recommendation of the attending physicians.”

Ampatuan is among the 196 accused in the multiple murder case pending before the court in connection with the gruesome murder of 58 people in Maguindanao last Nov. 23, 2009.
