Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan today says that the truth has a way of coming out, especially where the anomalies of the past administration is concerned.

“It looks like now that the Senate’s Blue Ribbon Committee may possibly play the role of the Truth Commission of the Aquino administration. The country now has a chance to dig deeper and know more about the indiscretions of the past administration should Rebusa pushes through with the statements linking former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo with the alleged anomalies within the military.”

Pangilinan says that Rebusa is a credible witness, saying the retired lieutenant colonel is putting his and his loved ones lives on the line with his exposes. “Nilalagay niya ang pamilya niya sa alanganin. Sakit lang ng ulo ang aabutin niya dito, pero nakonsiyensiya siya kaya niya ginagawa ito.”

“The Senate should provide Rebusa all the security he needs to protect him as a witness. It is the least we can do given the situation he is currently in.”
