Statement of Sen. Francis Pangilinan, author of the law ensuring that child offenders not be jailed with adult offenders
Hail Queen Cat for defending children's rights: Sen. Kiko

We hail Miss Universe Catriona Gray for speaking her mind and at the same time putting forward solutions to children in conflict with the law.

It was an incisive, intelligent response coming from her exposure to the conditions of children especially in indigent communities.

Certainly, it was not fair and arbitrary for bashers to say she was misinformed and lacked education on the issue, and to impute that she got her information from critics of the administration.

We urge Catriona not to be intimidated and to continue her advocacy and work for the welfare of children.
