Philippines: Arroyo's corruption-tainted husband returns home from self-imposed exile in U.S.

President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo's corruption-tainted husband, who voluntarily left the country three months ago to ease the political pressure on his wife, returned to the Philippines on Thursday, his lawyer said.

Jose Miguel "Mike" Arroyo, an attorney accused of influence-peddling and receiving illegal gambling kickbacks, left for San Francisco on July 6 as his wife's administration was rocked by allegations that she cheated in last year's elections.

An opposition bid to impeach her in Congress on vote-rigging and corruption charges failed in September, and the crisis has ebbed since. Santos said it wasn't clear whether he will leave again. He faces no charges and has denied taking gambling payoffs. The charges are the subject of an ongoing congressional inquiry, the AP reported.
