Statement of Sen. Francis "Kiko" Pangilinan on PCOO's info drive in Europe

Why is the government suddenly interested in clearing its name before the international community on the arrest of Maria Ressa when before, when before it has ignored criticisms on extrajudicial killings as a result of the drug war?

Aren't the President's defenders enough to parry the views on the apparently harassment incident?

Could it be that Secretary Andanar and the PCOO people just want a whiff of winter, thus, the sudden urge to go into this information caravan?

How much is the PCOO spending for this trip in taxpayers' money?

Isn't it more worthwhile and beneficial to spend it in helping the DOH in its information drive to get as many children vaccinated to help curb the measles outbreak?

Let's use our meager resources judiciously.

Our Otso Diretso senatorial candidates -- Gary Alejano, Bam Aquino, Chel Diokno, Samira Gutoc, Pilo Hilbay, Romy Macalintal, Mar Roxas, and Erin Tañada -- will ensure that the people's money will be spent on people's needs, not on the whims of those in power.
