Bongbong Marcos has never seen the kind of cruelty to the Ilocos Norte witnesses now called as Ilocos 6 that is extended to his sister, Gov. Imee Marcos. He has been a congressman himself and it never happened before in the House of Representatives that they do such a thing.

This is what Marcos thinks of the Congress; “I think it’s entirely unnecessary and the word, I believe, is cruel,” he said. Marcos’ sister, Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos, was subpoenaed by the House of Representatives to attend the hearing on July 25. She already refused 3 hearings before that on the alleged ₱66-million purchase of government vehicles using funds for tobacco farmers.
Gov. Marcos was willing to attend the hearing. It’s Bongbong Marcos who is against it. This prompted Pimentel to warn the former senator that he could be cited for contempt. Marcos then commented that the move seemed to be a part of some kind of personal revenge or political campaign.
House Majority Leader and Ilocos Norte 1st District Rep. Rudy Farinas spearheads the inquiry. He was a previously a political ally of the Marcoses. It is now known that he wanted his daughter to run as the representative for District 1 for Ilocos Norte. Gov. Marcos even transferred to District 2 after his request. However, the political ambition of the clan goes beyond that. They want to destroy the Marcoses.
Marcos said that the so-called “Ilocos 6” were members of his staff during his time as governor. Then inherited by his sister when she assumed the post. “Now they’re languishing in this little room in the House of Representatives for no good reason as far as I can see, except that perhaps the members of the Committee did not like their answers,” he said.
