Dr. Bryan Sy’s wife seeks habeas corpus prior to DOJ filing
The wife of Dr. Bryan Sy – the owner WellMed Dialysis and Laboratory Center in Quezon City, which was implicated in the fictitious dialysis claims paid by Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) – on Tuesday challenged her husband’s arrest and sought a writ of habeas corpus before a Manila court.
This prompted the National Bureau of Investigation to present Dr. Sy before the Manila Regional trial court branch 20 at around 3 p.m. on Tuesday in response to Therese Francesca Tan-Sy’s petition.
Afterwards, Dr. Sy was brought to the Department of Justice for inquest proceedings on charges of estafa and falsification of documents.
The Manila court will determine whether the arrest of Sy is valid. Otherwise, it may order his release.
