As a former Marine soldier uncovered to harsh atmosphere and starvation throughout operations, resigned Customs chief Nicanor Faeldon is undeniably snug in his detention room on the Senate.
That is in response to Faeldon’s lawyer, Jose Dino who visited him in his detention room Monday after he voluntary surrendered to the Senate safety.
The former Marine captain opted to just accept the punishment imposed on him by the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee–be detained–for not cooperating with the panel’s probe on smuggling and payoff system on the Bureau of Customs (BoC).
Dino stated Faeldon instructed him to not fear a lot about his scenario. “Sabi n’ya, ‘Atty., you don’t know me. I can take care of myself.’ Let us remember mga kaibigan once a Marine (soldier will) always (be) a Marine (soldier).”
“Kumakain ‘yan siguro once every four days. Natutulog ‘yan sa jungle tuwing umuulan at umaaraw. So, ‘yung Senate detention sabi n’ya, ’That’s nothing to me.’ It’s a very small price to pay for a message,” Dino stated in a cellphone patch interview.
“We cannot complain. E, three weeks s’ya (minsan nakababad) sa bagyo, tapos (‘yung) init tinatawanan lang n’ya. Sabi nga n’ya hindi detention room pang Colonel na daw ‘yun,” he added.
Faeldon stood pat on his resolution to not attend the Senate investigation on the smuggling of P6.four billion shabu from China and his alleged involvement in the payoff system on the BoC to protest some senators’ alleged propensity to accuse folks of alleged wrongdoings, via privilege speeches, with out legitimate proof.
