Senator Pia nag-react sa apology ni Gigi (COS, Juan Ponce Enrile) – Episode 7 Reality TV (Senate of the Philippines)

Posted here at 4:38 pm. From abs-cbn news [the full text of the statement is not linked in the news article; neither is it linked  in Senator Pia Cayetano’s twitter account or posted anywhere in the net (I would have published it in full here) ; anyway, in the interest of… presenting all episodes of the Reality TV, Senate of the Philippines, here’s the gist of Senator Pia Cayetano’s statement today in response to the public apology and statement of Atty. Gigi Reyes yesterday]:

    “In her public apology, Atty. Gigi Reyes said she understood the depth of the Senate President’s personal hurt involving me and my brother. The reason was deeply rooted, she hinted, but did not proceed to reveal it… xxx

“With all honesty, I cannot think of any other issue, apart from the RH and Sin Tax laws, that might have caused Senate President Enrile to feel so strongly against me. I know he was not happy with me regarding Sin Tax because he asked for my removal from the bicameral conference committee on Sin Tax. And of course, we all know our views on RH were poles apart … xxx

Referring to  her personal and professional relationship with Enrile:  “ (It) had always been good.”

“That’s why in my speech last Tuesday [January 22], I asked the Senate President whether I was being penalized for speaking my mind. But assuming that what Atty. Reyes said was true – that Senator Enrile had deeper reasons for resenting my brother and I – is that an acceptable reason for him to act against a colleague? Does it mean that if any of the senators displease him in any way, he can arbitrarily act and treat us differently? ‘Pag di sya happy sa ‘yo, pwede ka nyang api-apihin?”

    Well, this is just a passing Scandal like dozens of Scandals that had besieged the Senate for quite a while. If you’d ask me, only Senator Lapid for doing nothing is the Least dinner of All Senators. And that is not to admire Senator Lapid at all, but just to give an idea how low and insignificant and immoral an unethical and Shameless this Senate has Become. Senator Diokno, Tanada and many who had graced the Hall of this institution may be turning in their Peaceful Rest.
