On Bolante spending Christmas in jail
Malacañang should pity other people and not Bolante just because he might spend Christmas at the Senate said Senator Richard Gordon in an interview today
Gordon said the administration should feel more sorry about the Filipinos, particularly the farmers, who were deprived of the P728 million. He said they should also feel sorry for the children of journalist Marlene Esperat, who was killed for reportedly exposing the anomaly.
He said Malacañang should not politicize the issue because it was all about accountability.
Gordon stressed the Senate had been fair to Bolante and that he would be released once he had satisfied the senators or if a case against him had been filed before the Ombudsman or the courts for his culpability on the scam and false testimony at the Senate.
