Senator Sonny Trillanes has volunteered to examine the alleged involvement of Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte to smuggling if some senators “do not have the guts” to achieve this.
Trillanes is taking the initiative after Senator Dick Gordon, chair of the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee, declared he has no plans to probe studies that Duterte, the primary born of President Rodrigo Duterte, was concerned in smuggling.
Gordon stated he would simply “take the President’s word” that he would resign if there was proof to present that his son was certainly concerned in any irregularity.
“Depende kung may dibdib ‘yung chairman, eh, talagang ipupursige niya, di ba? Eh kasi it boils down to the presiding officer,” Trillanes stated in a radio interview.
“Ngayon kung di sila kumportable eh di mag-re request ako na mag create tayo ng subcommittee at para tututukan ko ‘yan,” he stated in an interview with DWIZ radio.
He added, “Kung wala kang panahon diyan eh ako tututukan ko ‘yan. Kung wala ako ma-po produce (na ebidensiya) eh di ako din ang mapapahiya, di ba?”
Trillanes stated he already proposed to Senate President Koko Pimentel to create a subcommittee below the Blue Ribbon if Gordon doesn’t need to conduct the probe.
“Marami tayong p’wedeng ipatawag diyan. Kaso nga, ‘di natin hawak ang sitwasyon,” he stated.
