Transcript of interview of Senator Teofisto "TG" Guingona III
at the Pinoy Music Summit

Question: (inaudible, on reso of Sen Miriam Santiago)

STG: yes, but in deference to the body, kelangan muna yung resolution ma-refer sa Blue Ribbon. Then, we can go ahead.

Q: Di niyo po i-invite on your own? Baga, me power naman yung Blue Ribbon...

STG: In deference to the (blue ribbon), we'll wait nalang until it is referred to us.

Q: Sir pagna-refer na..

STG: We're inclined to hear it, why not.

Q; Can it referred kahit walang session?

STG: Yun nga e, wala. It cannot e. Pagbalik.

Q: Maraming calls naitigil nayung sa pork barrel and shift to Malampaya. Nag-decide na ba kayo?

STG: Not yet, we'll evaluate during the break

Q: If you move on to Malampaya will you call Ruby Tuason?

STG: Yes we will be calling her. But we have to review what she said because she said the one involved was her brother. Nevertheless, we will call her just to clarify things.

Q: Yung lavish expenses sa detainment ni Napoles, will you call for an investigation sa PNP?

STG: We will leave that to the executive department. They would be in the best position to take care of that.

Q: Sir what if na-decide nyo na immediate na yung hearing then na-refer na sa committee yung reso ni Sen Miriam pag start ng session...

STG: That can be a new investigation based on that resolution.

Q: Sir ano significance pagpapatawag kila Rhodora? Di ba pinatawag na sya before?

STG: Yes she was there the first time. Yes that's what we have to look into. We also have to respect the resolution filed.

Q: What about former secretary Arthur Yap?

STG: He's presently a congressman, so interparliamentary courtesy must be extended.

Q: No hearing scheduled for this break

STG: None

Q: Sir si former senator Ed Angara will you be calling him?

STG: We will leave that up to him, as we have done for other senators.

Q: May interparliamentary courtesy pa rin kahit di na siya senator?

STG: We will ask him first if he wishes to appear.

Q: Sir me letter kayo pinadala sa mga senador para mag insert ng mga ano, me natanggap na ba kayo?

STG: The letter said in the spirit of fairness, If you wish to give us anything, whatever it is, documents, etc., please submit. Sen Estrada has given us a letter that he will not be submitting. Walang reply pa kay Senator Revilla. Sen Enrile manifested on the floor that he will be submitting.

Q: Sir yung mga media personalities nana-drag...

STG: That can be part of another investigation if somebody will initiate. But with everything we have that need investigating, we have to prioritize.
