Watch How Sen. Gordon Asks CHR During the Senate Hearing:
Sen. Gordon felt really disappointed because during the time of President Aquino, the riding-in-tandem cases were rampant and kept on victimizing people but the CHR were silent.
The Philippine National Red Cross (PNRC) chairman noted that the riding-in-tandem victimized many innocent lives and there were even rumors that the people behind the riding-in-tandem are prisoners who were given a chance to go out in their cell temporarily to perform the crime.
Aside from the disappointment with the CHR, Sen. Gordon also recommended that the Philippine government under Pres. Duterte must inform China, Hong Kong and Taiwan that most of the illegal drugs came from their country.
Informing the international communities could be the key that the United Nations (UN) will stop criticizing President Duterte and the Philippines as whole.
For the PNP Chief Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa, he showed his frustrations during the Senate hearing and asked Sen. Gordon how they can imprison the drug lords if they are already inside the prison.
Sen. Gordon also said during the hearing initiated by the controversial Sen. De Lima that the law must rule and the PNP must not stop in eliminating the illegal drug trades in the Philippines.
For the past few days since President Duterte assumed office as President of the Philippines, the Commission on Human Rights and other senators particularly Sen. De Lima kept on attacking the current admin and questioned the “Oplan Tokhang” that made a successful story in Davao City.
