Jun Lozada is fighting not only a legal battle that has placed him in jail, he's also fighting a medical battle that has now landed him in the hospital. Lozada was arrested on April 29 as a result of perjury charges filed against him by defeated administration senatorial candidate Mike Defensor.
The star witness of the ZTE-NBN broadband scandal which rocked the Philippines more than a year ago is now confined at Room 8837 of the Medical Center Manila along UN Avenue.
You will recall that early yesterday morning, a lady doctor rushed to Lozada while he was still in jail after the latter's blood pressure dropped. The doctor confirmed that Lozada is "anemic" and that detention has further deteriorated his health. She ordered blood tests to be taken. It was hours after this that Lozada again complained of difficulty of breathing which prompted police authorities to summon two doctors who immediately recommended Lozada's admission to the hospital.

If top whistleblower Jun Lozada loses his battle without this nation standing up to be heard and protesting, this country is really washed down the drain.
