When the news the arresting officers failed to nab Trillanes from the senate building because SP Tito Sotto intervened, netizens couldn’t hide their disappointment, even hate Sotto for it.
Social media blogger and Duterte defender Krizette Chu took to Facebook to register her voice as among the dismayed netizens in the wake of the news report the Senate President used his power to stop the arresting officers from doing their job.
But in a democratic country like ours, even allies have disagreements on certain issues.
For example, retired broadcaster Jay Sonza, another staunch Duterte defender on social media have another stand on the “”=Sotto coddling Trillanes issue”.
In a Facebook post just today, September 6, 2018, Sonza said he is grateful that Sotto and Zubiri for making Trillanes stay in the senate. Do you know why?
Trillanes could have done a Ping Lacson and eluded his arresting officers by leaving the senate building before they arrived.
mukhang naisahan ng senate majority si trillanes at ang minority bloc sa ginawa nilang pagpayag na manatili si sonny sa senado habang wala pang warrant of arrest.
maaga pa lang kasi alam na nilang voided ang amnesty ng senador at maari itong arestuhin ng mga sundalo o ng pulis at ibalik sa kulungan.
sa kahinaan ng utak ni trillanes, pinili niyang mag-privilege speech muna at upakan ang administrasyon at nagdesisyon na manatili sa senate premises.
maari naman kasing sumibat si trillanes noong araw na iyon, dahil wala naming warrant of arrest at hold departure order. siguro hindi rin siya nakahingi ng advise kay sen. ping, naka-eskapo noong pinahuhuli siya ni sen. de lima
dahil dito hindi nakasibat palabas ng bansa at makapagtago ang dating navy officer. sa kasalukuyan, napapalibutan na ng mga sundalo ang buong paligid ng senate premises.
congratulations kina senate president tito sotto at majority leader migz zubiri for making trillanes stay and would make it easier for the authorities to effect an arrest. ang gagaling nyo mga sir.
