Last week Ibañez said Arroyo’s body was expected to be brought to Negros Occidental on Tuesday or Wednesday so his constituents could pay their last respects to the three-term solon at a wake set in Binalbagan, before his burial at his family’s mausoleum at the North Cemetery in Manila on Saturday.

Arroyo, 61, had passed away in London on January 26 after a long battle with cirrhosis of the liver, with his long-time companion Grace Ibuna beside him.moremoremore
