If you count on the Senate investigation into the alleged P1 billion ill-gotten wealth of Commission on Elections Chairman Andy Bautista will be a “telenovela”, you’ll be dissatisfied.
Senator Dick Gordon stated he would not permit any involved social gathering to show the investigation into Bautista’s ill-gotten wealth into a drama spectacle even when it has all the weather of a cleaning soap opera.
“Di kami mag-iimbistiga para hiyain sila at para pahirapan ‘yung pamilya. Di kasalanan ‘nung mga anak ‘yung pagkakasala ng magulang,” he stated.
“Pipigilan ko pag-piyestahan ang away nila o kaliwaan nila kung meron man,” the senator stated in a radio interview.
He added, “Ang iimbistigahan ko, ano ba talaga ang ginawa mong mali sa batas.”
Gordon, chair of the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee, on Saturday stated he would quickly schedule the probe.
Senator Tito Sotto earlier requested the Blue Ribbon panel to research the allegation of Bautista’s estranged spouse, Patricia, that he retains over P1 billion in hidden wealth.
