Sulpicio Lines: Be honest with passengers' kin

MANILA, Philippines - An administration senator chided owners of the ill-fated "Princess of Stars" Sunday to be honest with relatives of the craft's missing passengers.

Sen. Richard Gordon said he had talked to officials of Sulpicio Lines and told them to face the relatives instead of "hiding" from them.

"Kinausap ko ang may-ari at sinabi ko diretsahin nila ang tao. Kung wala silang alam sabihin nilang walang alam, huwag paasa ang mga tao (I told the owners to be frank with the relatives of the passengers. If they don't know what happened, they should say so. They should not just clam up and give the relatives false hopes)," he said in an interview on dzBB radio.

Besides, he said the relatives had been racked with worry over what happened to their loved ones since the vessel capsized Saturday noon.

"Naghihinagpis sila rito (They have been agonizing over what happened to their loved ones)," he said. - GMANews.TV
