According to NCRPO Special Operations Unit Deputy Chief Insp. Paterno Domondon Jr., Padilla is allegedly spitting the medicine that is supposed to regulate his blood pressure and placing it on top of his chest instead.
“Nakita natin na dinukot niya doon sa bibig niya yung nilalagay (na gamot). ‘Yun pala, ‘yun ang technique niya para hindi siya kwan… parang strategy niya para hindi mag-stable yung BP niya. Clear indication na talagang nanloloko siya,” Domondon said.
Although Padilla’s camp denied the allegation, the businessman’s lawyer admitted that they are against sending Padilla behind bars since the suspect is suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
“That is the SOP because he was already cleared by the doctor, of course we’re objecting because he still continue to suffer something which is an OCD case,” Atty. Virgilio Batalla said.
After making sure that Padilla is already in a stable condition, he was eventually transferred at Camp Bagong Diwa at past 12 midnight.
Upon arrival, Padilla’s blood pressure shoots up again, so instead of going straight behind bars, authorities decided to let him stay in the investigation room for the meantime in order to monitor his health. But the NCRPO made sure that there is no special treatment against the controversial businessman.
