SIXTEEN senators on Monday voted to declare the chairmanship and membership of the Senate committee on justice and human rights vacant. The committee is chaired by Senator Leila de Lima, who initiated the Senate probe on the alleged extrajudicial killings in the country under the Duterte administration.

Only four senators voted against a motion to declare all positions of the committee vacant. Two abstained. The members of the minority bloc headed by Senator Ralph Recto did not participate in the voting. Senate Majority Leader Vicente “Tito” Sotto III immediately elected “reluctant” Senator Richard Gordon to replace De Lima as chair of the committee.

Trough the tandem of Delima and Taitorlannes line of questioning, it seems that they are leading their not vetted/fraudulent witness in inferring that Du30 was ordering the massacre of Muslims by bombing the mosque without any corroborating evidence That is by design inciting the Muslims to rebel against the sitting president and create havoc in the entire nation. The D&T tandem should be tried for treason by Senate and the administration justice department by questioning their star witness Mobato if he was coached and rehearsed by D&T dou to say that malice and slanderous statements which could lead to another mayhem all over the nation.

I won't disagree with Senator Gordon for the position but I was hoping that Senator Pacman would be a better choice...
