Senator Koko Pimentel said there is no comparison between the cases of Ilocos Norte 2nd District Representative Imelda Marcos and Senator Antonio Trillanes.
Pimentel’s remark comes after the Philippine National Police (PNP) said they were not stationing operatives at the House of Representatives in deference to the Ilocos Norte politiko’s advanced age.
But before, PNP deployed operatives outside the Senate while waiting for a court decision on Trillanes’ warrant of arrest.
“’Wag tayo ganun. Each case will have its own factual setting. Hindi ‘to factual on criminal case and procedure. Let us not be quick to compare and to cite an injustice committed against one just because the other one is treated differently,” Pimentel said.
