Kris Aquino revealed on showbiz talk show The Buzz on Sunday, that last month, Malacañang pulled out two of Cory Aquino’s security escorts, whom she identified as Mel and Chris.

The military later admitted to have wrongly sent a notice to the former president and that the pullout was a “bureaucratic slip-up.” All former presidents are entitled to security under an executive order issued in 1966 and under General Headquarters Circulars issued in 1988 and 2003.

House Minority Leader Francis Escudero and Taguig-Pateros Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano, however, said the military security detail for them and other opposition leaders had also been pulled out.

Meanwhile, President Arroyo on Monday reportedly apologized to the Aquinos for the pullout of Cory’s security detail before her death.
