RESPONSE TO SENATOR MIRIAM DEFENSOR-SANTIAGO'S STATEMENT

For the information of everyone, the evidence and other documents RE: the Makati Parking Building gathered by the Senate Blue Ribbon Sub-Committee have already been submitted to the Ombudsman as early as September. It has already started its own fact-finding investigation on the matter. Therefore, the ongoing Senate investigation is not, in any way, delaying the cases filed with the Ombudsman. Moreover, the focus has now shifted to other anomalies committed by former and current city hall officials of Makati, hence, the need to continue with the investigation.

-Senator Antonio "Sonny" F. Trillanes IV
