Alvarez on Gascon: ‘Sobrang kapal ng mukha nya’

Sep 15, 2017 @ 15:47

House of Representatives Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez described Commission on Human Rights chairman Chito Gascon as too arrogant for refusing to resign his post following the House move to give the agency only a P1,000 budget for 2018.

“Yun na nga e. Ang sinasabi ko, sobrang kapal ng mkha nya. Kung sinasabi na ng karamihan na hindi nya ginagawa ang trabaho nya, dapat mahiya na sya, na hindi mo na nga ginagawa ang trabaho nya,” he said.

Asked what he thought the CHR was doing on the job, Alvarez said: “Di ko alam, nakaupo. tatawa tawa, inaalagaan ang mga karapatang pantao siguro ng kakampi nya sa politika.”

He said there was a clear case in which Gascon revealed his political color when he visited Senator Leila De Lima in Camp Crame.

“Tinanong ko, sino pa dinalaw nya, wala na raw, wala nang oras. Bakit isang tao lang? Pangalawa, anong ginawa nya sa Mamasapano case. May ginawa ba ang CHR? Malinaw na malinaw may nilabag na human rights,” he said.

Alvarez said the CHR budget will only be restored if they can show their programs for next year. “Ano bang programa nyo base sa mandato nyo sa Saligang Batas. Kung makita namin na maganda ang programa, bakit hindi? Pero kailangang i-justify nila.”
