In the Senate hearing on the alleged ‘Extra Judicial Killings,’ Monday, October 3, 2016, Senator De Lima lost her composure at the halls of the Senate when Senator Gordon, chairman of the Justice and Human Rights Committee, castigated De Lima from concealing the truth about the witness Matobato.
Gordon while accusing De Lima of having an oversight, the former ranted about the witness’s demeanor of leaving the senate hall while the hearing is still going on. To Gordon, it was a big insult to the Philippine Senate to leave while the inquiry is still going on. Senator Lacson then reacted by saying he wanted to terminate the hearing on Extra Judicial Killings.
Senator Pacquiao and Senator Cayetano also agree with Senator Lacson’s motion to terminate the hearing, meaning to close or dismiss the hearing.
Senator De Lima’s emotion sparked off when Senator Trillanes went to the podium and defended De Lima. Trillanes’s said that De Lima wasn’t concealing the truth because it was already disclosed by the witness.
Trillanes then demanded from Senator Gordon to ask an apology to De Lima.
