Quotes

Asked if the Senate was willing to investigate the Iloilo structure, Pimentel said: "If a senator files a resolution and the plenary refers it to a committee then no one wants to chair, then I will volunteer to chair the investigation."
Aquino asked Congress to review these decrees, as they were created then to favor Marcos cronies. "We are required to follow them: Whoever constructs infrastructure in those areas must be in partnership with the corporation of Mr. Marcos’ friend. Even worse: every time they add even just another short section to the original road, their franchise is extended by thirty years.

We find it difficult to understand your decision." His allies in Congress have since moved to investigate the Judiciary Development Fund
