- Sen. Risa Hontiveros commented over the recent remark of Sen. Bato dela Rosa
- She advised Dela Rosa to be professional and mature in the Senate
- Hontiveros added that she is hoping for Dela Rosa to rise to the challenge
Senator Risa Hontiveros gave a bit of advice to neophyte Senator Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa as he joined the Senate.
KAMI learned that the advice of Hontiveros stemmed from the Senate committee hearing last September 2017 where Dela Rosa got emotional and cried when she questioned him.
In a report by the Philippine Star (author Patricia Lourdes Viray), Hontiveros commented over the recent remark of Dela Rosa that he would not hold “paepal-epal” hearings.
"Sino ba nag-drama?” Hontiveros asked.
"I'm hoping na he will rise to the challenge so maging professional tayo, maging mature, let's grow up. Napaka-importante ng mga trabahong dapat gawin dito sa Senado at mga laban na dapat ilaban," she added.
In 2017, when Dela Rosa was still the Philippine National Police chief, he faced the Senate Committee on Public Order. Hontiveros questioned the integrity of policemen when Dela Rosa started raising his voice and shed some tears.
