Former Senator Jinggoy Estrada castigated the Commission on Human Rights about visiting them for the first time in three years for a so-called “inspection”.
Senator Estrada posted on Facebook filled with wrath towards the CHR and lashing out on them about the recent so-called visit in his and Senator Bong Revilla’s detention cell. On his post, he accused them of comparing their living situation with Senator de Lima’s.
The eight CHR officials who visited them were mostly appointees of Senator de Lima when she was still the chairman in the said agency.
This by itself, made Senator Estrada fuming with anger and scolded the officials face to face for only remembering to check up on them for the first time after three years of being detained in the Philippine National Police Custodial Center in Camp Crame.
“You BUNCH of hypocrites! Try visiting us again and I will give you the same tongue-lashing and dressing down that you guys in CHR deserve!!
Nasaan kayo nung nakulong kami nung unang buwan? Alam niyo ba kung paano kami tratuhin ng mga gwardiya namin? Alam niyo ba na hirap na hirap kami dito? Samantalang, wala pang isang buwan si De Lima dito, nandiyan na kayo, to the rescue, halos i-broadcast ninyo sa media ang kalagayan ni DeLima. I reminded them that we too were incumbent senators at that time.
One of them even dared to say that they sought an appointment to visit them last month.
Imagine, last month!! I retorted, mag tatatlong taon na kami dito, last month lang kayo humihingi ng pahintulot na bisitahin kami? Mga hypokrito talaga!! Ang sabi ko sa kanila, lets face reality. Kaya naman kayo nandito ngayon ay dahil kay De Lima. Maybe she instructed you guys to pay us a visit and to compare our living conditions,” he wrote in his post.”
Because of the former senator’s lashing out, one of the CHR official cried.
Former Senators Estrada and Revilla are facing plunder and graft charges from pork barrel scam while Senator de Lima was charged with drug-related charges.
