Watch: Sen. Gordon sumabog sa galit at binanatan si SPO3 Lascañas sa kanyang Privilege Speech

A fuming Senator Dick Gordon lambasted retired SPO3 Arturo Lascañas after the former confessed last Monday, claiming that the so-called Davao Death Squad was real, a turnout from his statement in the previous hearing that the group is only a product of media hype.

“Dapat nagalit si Senator Leila de Lima, nagsinungaling sa kanya yung kanyang testigo e; when he says the DDS is just media hype, that DDS does not exist, that he had nothing to do with the mosque’s bombing,” Gordon said.

De Lima was the chair of the justice committee when she initiated the investigation on the alleged extrajudicial killings in the country until he was unseated and replaced by Gordon.

“My Goodness, Mr. President. Now he says he bombed them? And you wanna believe this man? This man who lies frequently, who claims he is paid to murder? He is paid now to talk? Can I ask that question? No, I will not ask that question. I’m sure, I’ll say you are now paid that’s why you’re here and I don’t think you can blame me if I said that. Ako lang ho yun, huwag na yung iba,” Gordon said.

Gordon advised retired police officer and his camp to bring his new allegations to a proper court, as the Senate has not much time for his retracted statements.

"The next time we invite somebody here. Then let's make sure he reads his oath twenty times, let him promise twenty times because nobody is gonna respect us here. Ay, sa senado madaling magsinungaling yan papatawarin ka, magpapa-press conference pa sa Senado mismo. Anong mangyayari sa imbestigasyon natin? Anong mangyayari sa mga tao na pumupunta rito para humanap ng katarungan?" Gordon stressed.
