Former Bureau of Customs (BOC) Comm. Nicanor Faeldon is singing a unique tune after Blue Ribbon committee chair Sen. Richard Gordon granted his request to visit his pregnant spouse, take his oath in his hew post, and endure a hear 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 mentioned in an announcement.
His assertion was posted within the Faeldon Legal Team Twitter account.
Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Chief Brig. Gen. (ret.) Jose Balajadia mentioned he obtained a verbal order from Gordon by way of blue ribbon committee secretary Atty. Rudy Quimbo to permit Faeldon to be at his spouse’s aspect when she ship’s their little one, accompanied by the members of the Office of the Sergeant-at-Arms (OSAA).
The identical association will probably be made within the different furlough granted him, Balajadia mentioned.
Faeldon final week accused the senator of inflicting merciless, degrading and inhumane punishment on him whereas he proceed to be detained within the Senate.
