Sen. Gordon slams Sen. de Lima for using the senate as a tool to ‘divert the media’

New Justice committee chair Sen, Richard Gordon slammed Senator Leila de Lima for supposedly using the Senate hearing as a tool to “divert the media” and “protect herself”.

“Kailangan ‘yung talagang objective. Hindi ‘yung dahil binabanatan ka ng Pangulo, babanat ka ng personal. Kukuha ka ng testigo bigla bigla na hindi kilala ng komite. Hindi mo bibigyan ng pasubali ang komite… Dapat nasa lugar,” Gordon said over Radyo Inquirer 990AM. “Parang may anggulo. Madadala ang Senado sa away nilang personal, hindi ‘yung sa imbestigasyon na dapat malapat.” Philippine Daily Inquirer quoted Senator Gordon as saying.

“May ibabato sa kanya ngayong araw sa Kongreso eh inunahan niya, nilabas niya ito para maligaw ‘yung direksyon ng media, parang almost an instinct of protecting herself at the expense of the Senate. Hindi pwede ‘yun,” he added.

Sen. Gordon also said that the testimonies of the witness Edgar Matobato who claims to be a member of Davao Death Squad were not part of the resolution sought to investigate the recent drug-related deaths in the country. Adding that the senators have yet to study whether Matobato would still be relevant in the hearing.

“Definitely ang gusto natin masunod ‘yung intensyon ng Senado na malaman kung ano ang puno’t dulo nitong maraming namamatay na sinasabing vigilante, maraming namamatay na pulis sa bakbakan. At para makita kung ano ang dapat gawin ng Kongreso sa mga ganitong bagay, kung merong ginagawang katiwalian sa pagpatay. Siympre sagrado ang human rights sa atin, sagrado rin ang katarungan sa atin,” he said
