At the start of the senate session earlier today, Senator Juan Miguel ‘Migz’ Zubiri expressed his frustration over Sen. Antonio ‘Sonny’ Trillanes IV for accusing him and Sen. Richard Gordon of white-washing the investigation of the bribery case involving employees of the Bureau of Immigration.
Zubiri clarified the rules of investigation and accused Trillanes of having his own agenda for the agency's reorganization.
Trillanes defended himself and stood by his accusation, even bringing up Zubiri’s involvement in a fraud case in 2007.
The two started grilling each other by recalling cases that were filed against them in the past. Things got more intense when Zubiri said that it was supposed to be Gordon's Senate Blue Ribbon Committee that will investigate the bribery scandal involving Jack Lam.
