After Faeldon skips Senate inquiry, JV Ejercito expects ‘wheelchair’ excuse next

Aug 9, 2017 @ 12:59

It has been done before and may likely happen again.

Senator JV Ejercito is anticipating an embattled government official to use a wheelchair as prop when he decides to reappear in a Senate inquiry on the drug smuggling controversy hounding the Bureau of Customs.

“Someone is in the hospital, coincidence for today’s hearing? We can expect the hearing-standard and famous wheelchair to come out next,” the senator tweeted.

Ejercito’s tweet came after Customs chief Nicanor Faeldon skipped the Senate investigation into the P6.4 billion shabu shipment from China on Wednesday (August 9) due to an illness.

Faeldon, in a letter to the Senate blue ribbon committee, claimed he was suffering from “non-ST elevation myocardial infarction coronary syndrome” and “hypertensive urgency stage 2.” He was reportedly advised to rest for his full recovery following his recent hospital confinement.
