Sen. Sotto, please take a stand

04:05 AM January 08, 2021

I hope the senators would not be intimidated by President Duterte’s public threats and push through with their investigation of the illegal vaccination of the Presidential Security Group (PSG) personnel. This is not a question of whether they sacrificed their lives for the sake of the President, but the need to uphold the rule of law. The PSG is not above the law. They are duty-bound to uphold the Constitution and the laws. They are not the personal security of Mr. Duterte, but of all presidents who will succeed him.

Unfortunately, Senate President Vicente Sotto III, instead of upholding the law, is being lame. Kahit pabalatkayo, hindi man lang nanindigan. Have the courage to stand up to the rude and bullying occupant of Malacañang, Mr. Senate President.
