The Armed Forces of the Philippines and Philippine National Police should leave no stone unturned to:

Senate Minority Leader Aquilino Q. Pimentel, Jr. (PDP-Laban) today praised former President Corazon C. Aquino as a leader who faithfully and selflessly served her country as he joined fellow Filipinos in praying for her steady recovery from her illness.

Minority Leader Aquilino Q. Pimentel, Jr. (PDP-Laban) today said that the security detail to key witnesses in the National Broadband Network-ZTE scandal should not be totally withdrawn by the Senate unless it is absolutely sure that they are no longer facing any threat to their lives.

Senate Minority Leader Aquilino Q. Pimentel, Jr. (PDP-Laban) today asked whether Interior and Local Government Secretary Ronaldo Puno still enjoys the confidence of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo amid the brouhaha over the designation of an officer-in-charge in his department while he is on a two-week leave of absence.

Senate Minority Leader Aquilino Q. Pimentel, Jr. (PDP-Laban) today urged government authorities to get the deposition of Filipino-American activist Melissa Roxas in the United States on her allegation that she was abducted and tortured by the military when she visited the country last May.

Friendship is not a crime. What is cause for worry is if criminal demands are proven to have been made. Then, there is justification for calling the deal with Smartmatic off. But if things are simply being speculated on, the automation should go on. And those who have the proof of any wrong doing should come out in the open and say so. It is important that thievery in government should be stopped the moment it rears its ugly head.

Automation of elections is no joking matter. There is a place for jokes; a place for serious talk.

If Melissa Roxas cannot come back for a preliminary investigation, there should be a way to get her statement before our embassy or consulates in the US, just to start the investigation.

Lumang tugtugin na yan. Whoever is trying to set the country up for the imposition of martial law or national upheaval should be a little more innovative.

Filipinos here in Geneva and Berne are amazed that our own officials appear to want to scare other peoples from coming to the Philippines because of A(H1N1) flu.
