The North Remembers
The governor is sad of the fact that, her staff who are also family members like mothers, fathers, and grandmothers are suffering in a restricted room instead of going home to their loved ones. Her lawyer is at a retirement age already but she just gives in to her plea to continue working but ended up in detention as well. She vows that the North remembers.
Retreat from First District
Gov. Marcos discloses that her rift with Fariñas just started when his daughter plans to run as the Representative for the province’s District 1. To avoid the conflict, she transferred her residency to District 2 despite living in Laoag. This is based on her mother’s advice not to stir the politicking issues.
Bongbong Marcos said that the move seemed to be “part of some kind of personal campaign” or “political campaign.” The inquiry was initiated by House Majority Leader and Ilocos Norte 1st District Rep. Rudy Farinas. He was a former previous political ally of the Marcoses.
Supreme Court Intervention
As Gov, Marcos seeks the Supreme Court intervention on the release of the Ilocos 6 and for the prevention of her own possible detention, Bongbong Marcos has this to say; “The Ilocos 6 were members of his staff during his time as governor. 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. Where is justice as far as the Congress is concerned?
