KAHIT nasa recess ang dalawang kapulungan ng kongreso, tuloy pa rin ang pagdinig ng Senate Committee on Justice na pinamumunuan ni Senador Richard Gordon sa kontrobersiyal na ‘Ninja cops.’
Ayon kay Gordon, nais nilang bigyan ng pagkakataon si Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Oscar Albayalde para sagutin ang mga akusasyon laban sa kanya.
Bukod dito sinabi ni Gordon, mayroon din panibagong testigong ihaharap at gayondin ang mga panibagong ebedensiya.
“The people have a right to know how these ‘Ninja cops,’ these corrupt cops, operate and they are entitled to justice. People want to know that the policeman that they have work for them. That they are still working for their welfare, for their safety. Having these corrupt cops is like being trapped in a hen house with a ravenous python,” ani Gordon.
Naniniwala si Gordon na karapatan ng taong bayan ang malaman ang buong katotohanan ukol sa naturang usapin.
Iginiit ni Gordon, walang dapat sinohin o katakutan sa pagtuklas ng katotohanan sa pamamagitan ng pagpapatuloy ng imbestigasyon.
“There’s been too much talk. Now we really have to measure every word, every evidence para people will know that the government is for them, not against them. It is really a betrayal of the President if these people continue because they have been paid well, ahead of the teachers. More importantly, they betray the people. They betray the people, they betray the President in spite of the fact that taxpayers’ money is given them to increase their salary,” dagdag ni Gordon. (NIÑO ACLAN)
