Senator Dick Gordon on Tuesday acted as “referee” between Sen. Sonny Trillanes and Customs Commissioner Nick Faeldon after the 2 had a face off on the Senate probe on the smuggled shabu from China.
Faeldon acquired harm by Trillanes latest pronouncements that the previous is “at the heart” of the controversy involving the smuggling of P6.four billion price of shabu.
This prompted Faeldon to snub Trillanes’ question whether or not there may be corruption on the Bureau of Customs (BoC). He complained that “innocent people” have been affected by the senator’s baseless accusation.
Gordon, chair of the Senate Bluer Ribbon Committee conducting the probe, advised the 2 former Oakwood mutineers to put aside their variations and concentrate on the smuggling downside on the BoC.
“Commissioner Faeldon, there may be something between you (and Sen. Trillanes). May pinagsamahan kayo ni Sen. Trillanes. Pareho kayong naging sundalo. At kung kayo’y may alitan ‘wag n’yo dalhin ang alitan n’yo dito,” Gordon mentioned.
Trillanes, who belongs to Phil. Military Academy Class of 1995 was a former Navy captain whereas Faeldon left the Marine Corps as captain.
