Nililihis, sinisingitan pag natumbok: Dick has record of protecting cornered gov’t officials – Trillanes
Senator Antonio Trillanes IV said Senator Dick Gordon’s history would show his inclination act like a protector of government officials and their relatives in corruption hearings.
In an interview with DZMM’s Ted Failon, Trillanes said he observed Gordon’s pattern of acting in the interest of the accused since he first sat as chair of the blue ribbon committee under the Arroyo administration.
“Paano natin ma-pursue ang gusto nating i-pursue kung nililihis. Minsan pakiramdam ko, parang sadya, pag alam mong matutumbok mo na, ililihis, sisingitan ka,” said Trillanes.
“May history na yan si Senator Gordon, noong panahon ni GMA, ganoon ginagawa niya. Pag natutumbok na GMA at matataas na opisyal, tatambangan na mga resource persons, sisigawan, tapos pag gumawa ng comittee report, wala doon, abswelto na lahat,” said Trillanes.
Trillanes said Gordon has carried this pattern of behavior up to the Duterte administration which has led to bloody consequences
“Iyong EJK (extrajudicial killings) hearing last year, pinalitan niya si Senator (Leila) de Lima. Immediately, pinahinto niya ang hearing kahit may siyam na testigo ang Commission on Human Rights,” said Trillanes.
“Tapos doon sa committee report, abswelto agad si President Duterte kaya ngayon kita niyo mahigit 10,000 na nangamatay dahil nilihis at inaabswelto ni Senator Gordon,” said Trillanes.
