Senator Richard Gordon turned emotional after senators in the minority bloc expressed their gratitude and support for him for leading the chamber’s investigation into alleged anomalous pandemic contracts.
During the Senate blue ribbon committee’s seventh hearing on Friday, September 17, Senate Minority Leader Frank Drilon manifested his “admiration” for Gordon, who is now being attacked by President Rodrigo Duterte himself.
Opposition senators Kiko Pangilinan and Risa Hontiveros also thanked Gordon for his “zeal” in pursuing Duterte’s links to the questionable pandemic deals.
