Maguindanao massacre suspect Zaldy Ampatuan was reportedly hospitalized on Monday.
KAMI learned that according to the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP), he was diagnosed with cardiovascular disease.
In a report by the Inquirer (author Katrina Hallare), Ampatuan is now in “stable” condition after being hospitalized.
“I can confirm that Zaldy Ampatuan was rushed to the hospital due to Cardio Vascular Disease Infarct Secondary to Cardiac Dysrhythmia,” BJMP Spokesperson Chief Insp. Xavier Solda said.
“As per last medical bulletin, he is in a stable condition now,” he added.
However, it was not disclosed where Ampatuan was hospitalized due to “security reasons.”
According to ABS-CBN News, the Maguindanao massacre happened during the filling of certificates of candidacy for the 2010 elections. About 58 people were killed and it was considered as one of the world’s worst election-related incidents and deadliest attacks against media practitioners.
In 2009, around 32 journalists were killed and several members of the Mangudadatu clan, the rival of the Ampatuans.
Zaldy Ampatuan was the governor of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM). He is the son of Andal Ampatuan Sr., the patriarch of the Ampatuan clan who was accused of being the mastermind of the massacre.
