Hontiveros: House hits its lowest in Dayan probe

SENATOR Risa Hontiveros described Friday the House of Representatives inquiry into the alleged illegal drug trade inside the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) as a “public lynching in aid of misogyny and sexism”.

“The intention was clear. Members of the committee were grossly unparliamentary. Their derogatory line of questioning did not aim to shed light on the issue of the drug trade in our prisons,” Hontiveros said referring to manner of questioning on Ronnie Dayan, a former security aid and alleged ex-lover of Senator Leila de Lima.
