Be professional & mature - Hontiveros' advice to Bato

Be professional & mature - Hontiveros' advice to Bato

Its like a classic case of a veteran and a rookie, in this case opposition senator Risa Hontiveros giving an advice to neophyte senator and former Philippine National Police(PNP) chief Ronald Dela Rosa.
Hontiveros gave an advice to dela Rosa to be professional as he might lead hearings on extrajudicial killings linked to the so-called war on drugs.

The opposition senator however reacted to a previous statement of Dela Rosa that unlike other senators, he will not hold "paepal-epal" hearings, or hearings for show.

"Sino ba nag-drama (Who went into dramatics)?" Hontiveros said at the Kapihan sa Senado forum

A hearing last September 2017 regarding the death of 17-year-old Kian  delos Santos and 19-year-old Carl Angelo Arnaiz, shows then PNP top cop Dela Rosa once broke down in tears at the Senate when Hontiveros grilled him about a supposed pattern in the deaths of drug suspects.
The Liberal party stalwart believes and has faith in the new senator and that “he will rise to the challenge” as the Senate is a different institution from the PNP.

"I'm hoping na he will rise to the challenge so maging professional tayo, maging mature, let's grow up. Napaka-importante ng mga trabahong dapat gawin dito sa Senado at mga laban na dapat ilaban," Hontiveros said.
(I'm hoping he will rise to the challenge, so let's be professional, to be mature. There is important work to be done at the Senate and many struggles that we should fight for)
