BRC not an instrument to advance political interest: Sen. Robinhood Padilla agrees with Sen. Francis “Tol” Tolentino, chairperson of the Blue Ribbon Committee, that the panel should not favor anyone nor be an instrument to advance one’s political interest. During the committee’s hybrid organizational meeting Wednesday, August 17, 2022, Padilla said there will be no sacred cow in the investigations to be conducted by the committee. “As enshrined in the Constitution, we will respect and protect the rights even of the accused,” Padilla said.
