JV Ejercito wants ethics probe over Trillanes' disrespectful remark against the Senate

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV on Monday called co-Senators as 'puppets' and 'cowards' of the Duterte administration.


"‘Yung Senado na dating last bastion of demoracy, ngayon wala na. Para na rin kaming mga tuta ng administrasyon na ‘to," Trillanes said.

"Ni ayaw magimbestiga eh. Dito ka makakakita ng mga senador na takot. Kaalyado ka na lang kasi ayaw mong aminin na takot ka eh,” he added.

Following with his remarks, some of his colleagues blasted Trillanes.

Senator JV Ejercito said he find Trillanes statements as 'disrespectful and unparliamentary.'

“I find the recent statements of Senator Trillanes disrespectful and unparliamentary. He should be reminded that as a democratic institution, we in the Senate debate issues instead of hurling insults; we vote instead of calling each other names when we disagree,” Ejercito said.

Ejercito wants a Senate ethics committee probe over Trillanes' action is damaging the institution and the country.

“Maybe it is high time that we refer to the Senate Ethics Committee Sen. Trillanes’ actions, since he is becoming damaging to the institution, and becoming destructive to the country,” Ejercito said.

Amid Ejercito statement, Trillanes welcomed the probe with open arms.

“But here’s the thing, if Sen. Ejercito believes that my statement that the Senate is becoming a lapdog of the Duterte administration is highly offensive yet sees nothing wrong with Duterte’s rape comments to the soldiers, then we really have a problem,” Trillanes said.

Moreover, Lacson already lashed back Trillanes and said that Trillanes is “so out of touch with reality, if not hallucinating too much.”

Calling one’s own colleagues ‘cowards’ or ‘puppets’ wholesale and without qualifying, is the darndest thing he can do,” Lacson said.
“I don’t know where he is coming from and I’m not even sure if he is still rationale in his thinking. One thing I’m sure about, he is dead wrong,” Lacson added.

Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III, chairman of the Senate ethics committee also slammed Trillanes.

“I do not know his reasons for saying that. He should be careful in calling us names. Hindi ko siya papatulan sa ngayon,” Sotto said.

“Motu propio is possible but it’s better if I receive a complaint. Hard to judge through media reports. I will entertain any complaint against any member of the Senate. Ngayon, ipaalala ko lang, when you point a finger at others, three others point at you,” Sotto added.
