Sotto: Drilon, Trillanes didn’t help Jinggoy, Bong, JPE; so why should we help Leila?

Sep 2, 2017 @ 20:33

Senator Tito Sotto is unlikely to support the resolution of Sen. Sonny Trillanes for the Senate to express support to calls to free Sen. Leila de Lima.

De Lima, a member of the Senate minority group, is detained at the Phil.National Police Custodial Center on drug charges.

Asked whether he would support Trillanes’ resolution, Sotto said, “Gustong-gusto ko ‘yun noong una sapagkat ‘yun ang ginawa kong motion at tinindigan ko noong panahon ni Senator (Juan Ponce) Enrile, (Jinggoy) Estrada at (Bong) Revilla. Ayaw nila eh.”

Sotto was referring to a similar motion he filed in the previous 16th Congress seeking support from colleagues to allow Enrile, Estrada, and Revilla to post bail after they were detained in relation to their alleged involvement in the pork barrel fund scam.

“Ayaw ng (Senate) leadership e noon. Ayaw nina Sen. (Frank) Drilon. Ayaw nila akong suportahan. Huwag daw kami makikialam sa korte,” he said.

“Ano ngayon ang sasabihin ko? Mali noon? Tama ngayon?” the Senate majority leader said. During the last Congress, Drilon was the Senate president and belonged to the majority bloc.

Drilon, now Senate minority leader, and the rest of the opposition bloc have already signed Trillanes’ resolution.

“Yun na nga eh. Ano ngayon? Papano ngayon? Noong araw hindi pwede, ngayon pwede? Papano naman papayag ‘yung majority sa amin dun?Eh, nung araw ayaw n’yo payagan nong kami eh,” he said.

Sotto said Trillanes’ resolution would not be tackled during the senators’ caucus on Monday. “Wala ‘yan. Hindi.”

“Ang (agenda) sa caucus sa Monday ‘yung priority bills ng administration, priority bills ng Senado, ng mga senador at saka ‘yung (ethics) isyu ni Sen. Gordon (laban kay Trillanes). Iyun ‘yung topic,” he said.

    Mr. Sotto’s lack of intelligence is coming out of his mouth. You cannot compare the case of the three to senator leila. or any case thereof. You only act/decide basing on evidences and witnesses at hand. The witnesses against Senator Leila are all convicted felons. They have their civil rights suspended. How can they witness freely when they themselves are not free? Now, Drug traders must have drugs confiscated that maybe attributed to them as owners. Where are those drugs? Now about the three? where did the money go?
