Faeldon all praises to Gordon after getting pass to visit wife, take oath, visit doctor
Former Bureau of Customs (BOC) Comm. Nicanor Faeldon is singing a different tune after Blue Ribbon committee chair Sen. Richard Gordon granted his request to visit his pregnant wife, take his oath in his hew post, and undergo a heart checkup.
Faeldon cited Gordon’s “decency and compassion” after getting approval for his “humanitarian furlough request.”
“Maraming salamat po SBRC (Senate blue ribbon committee) chairman. Masasaksihan ko na ang pagsilang ng aking bunsons anak, mayayakap ko na ang mga mahal ko sa buhay, makakapag-oath taking na ako sa DND-OCD (Department of National Defense-Office of Civil Defense) as deputy administrator III at makakapgpagamot na ako sa aking cardiologist,” he said in a statement.
His statement was posted in the Faeldon Legal Team Twitter account.
Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Chief Brig. Gen. (ret.) Jose Balajadia said he received a verbal order from Gordon through blue ribbon committee secretary Atty. Rudy Quimbo to allow Faeldon to be at his wife’s side when she deliver’s their child, accompanied by the members of the Office of the Sergeant-at-Arms (OSAA).
The same arrangement will be made in the other furlough granted him, Balajadia said.
Faeldon last week accused the senator of inflicting cruel, degrading and inhumane punishment on him while he continue to be detained in the Senate.
This was after his requests for furlough were denied by the senator.
Gordon immediately retorted saying that the requests made were unreasonable as it would expose him to danger there were instances that he asked permission to leave unaccompanied by the OSAA.
Faeldon is being held for contempt of the committee as he had been defiant in refusing to cooperate in the Senate’s inquiry on the alleged corruption in the BOC.
