For Sen. Panfilo Lacson, the selection between going through ethics complaints and exposing corruption ought to be a no brainer.

In a post on his Twitter account Sunday, Lacson stated he would select to proceed exposing endemic corruption fairly than shrink back from the difficulty and keep away from ethics complaints.

“Between a thousand ethics complaints and exposing endemic corruption, the latter is a hands down choice,” he stated (

He was referring to the ethics criticism to be filed in opposition to him by the camp of ex-Customs commissioner Nicanor Faeldon on Monday.

The criticism stemmed from Lacson’s privilege speech final Aug. 23, the place he detailed corruption within the Bureau of Customs, together with the “tara” system below Faeldon’s watch.

Faeldon is detained on the Senate after being cited in contempt, for refusing to testify earlier than the Senate Blue Ribbon committee’s listening to on the matter.

Last Friday, Lacson stated that whereas it’s anybody’s proper to file a criticism in opposition to any senator, the ethics criticism can be a waste of bond paper and ink.
