Manila, Philippines – Inilahad ni Senator Richard Gordon na hindi pa naghahain ng resolusyon si Senator Manny Pacquiao maging mga dokumento na magpapausad sa Senate Blue Ribbon committee na magsagawa ng imbestigasyon sa umano’y sinasabi nitong korapsyon sa ilang ahensya ng gobyerno.

 

 “Investigation of corruption cases must proceed but my committee cannot investigate based merely on newspaper accounts. I have neither received any request, nor has any Resolution been filed regarding Senator Manny Pacquiao’s allegations. Moreover, no documents have been shared with us,” lahad ni Gordon.

“But before we can even think of proceeding, the Blue Ribbon must know what it will be specifically investigating. It cannot go willy-nilly into any battlefield without knowledge of the what, the who, the how, the when, and the damage it caused the government. Unfortunately, we have yet to see the specificity of the allegations,” paliwanag pa nito.

Kahit pa maaari nang maglunsad ang Blue Ribbon panel ng motu propio probe sa alegasyon ni Pacquiao, sinabi ni Gordon na kailangan niyang Makita ang mga katotohanang nakapaloob sa alegasyon.

 “In legal parlance, I need a bill of particulars to be fair to all concerned. The tremendous powers of the Blue Ribbon Committee cannot be exercised in a cavalier fashion that could only lead to abuse. We are not in the business of chasing ghosts. We are in the business of doing what is right.”

 “If there is basis, I will not hesitate to act and do what is right,” punto pa ng mambabatas. RNT/FGDC
