Lawyer Trixie Cruz-Angeles proposal to move all senators in Crame jail to join Sen. Leila de Lima has been a huge hit among social media people.
Angeles made the remark following the news report that Senate President Vincente Sotto III wrote a letter to the PNP Chief to allow detained Sen. Leila de Lima to conduct a Senate hearing, which she chaired in the PNP Custodial Center in Camp Crame.
According to the Philippine Star report, Sotto explicitly requested Albayalde to “allow detained Sen. de Lima to exercise her functions as an elected senator of the country though the conduct of hearings on pending measures referred to the Senate Committee on Social justice, Welfare and Rural development…inside the premises of the PNP Custodial Center.”
In the Facebook post, a visibly irked Angeles relayed the news to her Facebook followers, apparently to gauge the reaction of social media and compare if they share the same sentiment.
Angeles asked if the senate hearing that de Lima will chair are portable hearings? And that sending the resource persons and a few senators to the PNP Custodial Center would already suffice?
Angeles’ suggestion to jail all the senators and then transfer the session hall there instead received the loudest cheer among her Facebook followers.
Oh ayan. Special na naman si Madame Leila. Gusto ni Senate President Sotto makapagconduct ng hearings sa Crame.
Ano ito, portable hearings? Dalhin ang mga resource persons dun, at ilang senador ok na?
Bakit di na lang natin ikulong lahat ng senador at dun na ilipat ang session hall?
Myrna Eloisa Ramos couldn’t help but laugh at the suggestion, signifying her nod of Angeles’ suggestion: “Hahaha let all senators who are for Delima stay with her..”
Netizen Jc Cardona welcomed Angeles’ suggestion, “Magandang suggestion yan Atty!. Ikuling nalang mga Senador 😂😂😂”
Joylyn Castro couldn’t agree more with Angeles’ proposal.“Tama po atty.ilipat na ang senado sa loob ng selda ni delima.pgpalain ka tito sa pg ka balimbing mo.wala ng boboto sau laos kna.”
Mona Vaag echoed Angeles’ sentiment “Korekk atty. Trixie, all senators follow delimaw sa jail at doon kayo mag session (singhot) kahit araw arawin pa ninyo.
Wala kaming pakialam basta wag lang ninyo dalhin yang saba na yan sa senate.
Nakakulong na nga bakit aatupagin na naman ulit yan? Oi an daming kailangan asikasuhin sa senado!
Ngayon palang ayusin nyo na hindi na yong picos “hukos” machine ang gagamitin nyo sa 2019 election. Maraming kababalaghan yan, baka nxt tym multo na ang makikita sa balot boxes👻”
While some netizens were annoyed and angry at Sotto’s proposal.
Jonathan Kristine Cabajog “Definition of stupid idea from SP..whew!”
Susan Bayabos remarked she was not amenable with Sotto’s plan. “I don’t like what Sotto’s doing – giving too much attention to that jailed/indicted senator. Does he owes her some “ILLEGAL FAVORS” so he’s pressured to pay her back right now?!? Or do they have SECRETS that should stay secret?!? Sotto’s actuations are very suspicious and uncalled for. Let’s put him down before he succeeds in further doing damages to us and our country!!!! SOTTO SHAME ON YOU, YOU’RE SO DISGUSTING!!!!”
George P. Delola condemned the Sotto plan. “Bakit ene entertain pa yan. M kasi yan na mabigat. Potah naman Sotto gago ka! Bugok ka!!!”
