Former Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo has been arrested on electoral fraud charges.

National police arrested Arroyo in her hospital room on Friday. The police suspect she conspired with officials to tamper with results of congressional polls in 2007.

Up until her arrest, Arroyo had been hospitalized for illness. Police officials told reporters that she will remain in policy custody in the hospital until her physical condition improves.

Arroyo’s 9 year term as president ended in June last year. Since the current President Benigno Aquino took office, Arroyo has been a target of investigations over irregularities and corruption.
