Cong. Beltran transferred to PNP Hospital for hypertension

Anakpawis Rep. Crispin Beltran is currently confined at the Room No. 1 of
the Philippine National Police (PNP) General Hospital for hypertension.

According to PNP-GH Head Nurse Maj. Geraldine Adaglao, he was admitted to
the Emergency Room at around 11:30 AM today for hypertension, with a blood
pressure level of 170/100. He was admitted to the hospital proper at 12:15
p.m. today.

As of 1:30 PM today, he was given maintenance medicine and will undergo
laboratory tests (urinalysis, x-ray, and CBC) for further examination.

Anakpawis reiterates its call to release Cong. Beltran immediately from
police custody, be transferred to a hospital for confinement under the
custody of the House of Representatives as per House Resolution No. 1169, in
order to be given proper medical attention.

This confinement at the PNP Hospital only affirms the findings in the
clinical abstract prepared by Dr. Reginaldo Pamugas and Dr. Melani
Hernandez-Sionzon on February 26, 2006.

We emphasize that Cong. Beltran's arrest and incarceration is
unhumanitarian, illegal and unconstitutional. This arrest under the Arroyo
administration's 'state of emergency' is a grave violation of his civil and
political rights. It must be condemned by all freedom-loving Filipinos and
the international human rights community.
