According to Sen. Tito Sotto, the most vocal critic of Pres Duterte, Sen. Antonio Trillanes’ should not abuse the sanctuary which given to him by the Senate to prevent authorities from arresting him.

“Mahiya naman sila sa akin, ‘wag naman nila abusuhin,” Sotto told the reporters.

The veteran lawmaker explained that the minority senators should not invite the public to go to the building on the weekend because the Senate is closed during that time.

The Senate President was quoted as saying “I was expecting them to help me preserve the integrity and the sanctity of the institution and not abuse the hospitatlity of the Senate leadership,” Sotto said.

The veteran lawmaker also said that he would not allow Sen. Trillanes and his supporters to hold a mass this upcoming weekend at the Senate as what they did earlier celebrating a mass.

Senate Pres. Tito Sotto suggeested that if Trillanes’ supporters want to hold a mass, they should do it outside the Senate building. ““(There’s) no need. There is a church nearby. Senate is closed on weekends. Only staff of senators are allowed,” he said.

Sotto also shared that they’re planning to turn off air-conditioning on weekends to save energy.

“We have to turn off air-conditioning at certain times and on weekends because it will bog down if they don’t,” Sotto said. “We are just accommodating Sen. Trillanes. I hope his supporters will not abuse our patience,” he added.
