The remains of Iggy Arroyo finally arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Wednesday night, February 29, a little over a month after he died in London on January 26. Arroyo is the younger brother of Jose Miguel “Mike” Arroyo, husband of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. The repatriation of his remains to the Philippines got stalled due to a tiff between his legal wife Alleli Arroyo and his partner Grace Ibuna.

“I just want him to have a dignified burial,” Ibuna told reporters at the airport. The former president, detained at the Veterans Hospital, was allowed to pay her last respects to him on Thursday, March 1.
