Ampaw kasi kaso! Gatchalian tells Gadon to engage in lawyering, not rumormongering
Senator Win Gatchalian on Monday dared Atty. Lorenzo Gadon to unmask the alleged oligarch he claimed to be willing to bribe senators to ensure the acquittal of embattled Supreme Court Chief Maria Lourdes Sereno.
“I think he should name that businessman. That’s an unfounded accusation. Ako, I know for a fact, wala akong nakakausap na businessman tungkol dito sa issue na ito, let alone, talk about the possibility of bribes. Hindi naman maganda yan. Hindi pa nag-uumpisa ‘yung impeachment nagkakaroon na ng ganitong accusations,” he said.
The neophyte senator strongly advised Gadon toattend to his case that he filed before the House of Representatives which seemed to be lacking any basis.
“Ang dapat nyang atupagin ‘yung mga sinasabi nyang wala namang basehan. Lahat naman ng sinabi nya dun sa (House) ay narinig, nanggaling sa ibang tao. I think ‘yun ang dapat nyang atupagin kesa akusahan ang Senado na kumakausap sa mga ganitong businessman,” he said.
“Since Gadon is the star accuser, dapat i-prove nya at ilabas nya ‘yung mga nalalaman nya direkta dito sa accusation na ito,” Gatchalian added.
The senator said he was watching closely if Gadon has enough evidence to back up his complaint and so far, the lawyer linked to the Marcos family and former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has come up empty.
