The investigation being conducted by the Senate blue ribbon committee into the allegedly grossly overpriced Makati City Hall building 2, which is actually a 6-story car park, may have some political undertones; but this is understandable since the accusers, the accused and the investigators are politicians.

A constitutional regime is a government bound by such laws.
