Cynthia Villar Vs. Bam Aquino and Risa Hontiveros


On Wednesday, September 27, Senator Cynthia Villar accused Senators Risa Hontiveros and Bam Aquino for plotting to destroy her in the coming 2019 re-elections.



"Meron talaga nagsabi sa amin na may dalawang senador from the minority who's trying to destroy us. Wina-warningan na kami siguro ano para bumaba rating namin para sila ang tumaas," Villar said.

Reporters asked Villar who she was referring to.

"Si Bam at si Sen. Risa ang sinabi nila. Hindi naman ako naniniwala kaya lang nung makita ko to nagulat ako, baka yun na nga yun. I didn't believe it (at first)," she said.




The senator was referring to an article published by SilentNoMore tagging her and 6 other senators "Malacanang Dogs" for not signing the Senate Resolution No. 516 urging the government to "undertake the necessary steps to stop the spate of killings, especially of our children."

"Maybe this is the beginning of what the other people told us, be careful because some senators will try to destroy you. Hindi naman ako naniniwala kaya lng nung makita ko ito baka totoo diba? Kasi hindi naman kami tinanong. Kinausap ko nga si Sen. Sotto, eh bakitganun sabi nila hindi pa raw official pa yun, nagpapapirma pa lang, bat lumabas ng ganyan," Villar said.

She said that she would have sign the said resolution if she has been given a chance.


"Bakit ka naman hindi pipirma eh ano lang yun sa mga bata, under the juvenile justice system hindi naman sila dapat kasali. Of course ginagamt sila ng matatanda to commit crime kasi hindi sila pwede i-prosecute. Of course we don't agree with that. Kahit na may kamalian. Yes. Maybe all of us agreed na dapat hindi ganun diba? Di dapat papatayin yung mga bata," she said.

Asked if she will seek and clarify to her colleagues the issue, she answered,

"Sila ang magsabi sa akin bakit ako magtatanong sa kanila? I didn't do anything. I'm not a part of this. I'm just saying that people told us that be careful because they're going to destroy us. Maybe this is the beginning diba? Of course will I allow myself to be detroyed by this? Napaka tanga ko naman," she said.

"I just want to make a manifestation that I together with other senators were not asked to sign. We did not refuse to sign. We were not asked to sign, okay? And I remember there were social media practitioners who told me before that I should be careful because certain members of this senate will try to destroy us. I did kept quiet because I did not believe. Now, maybe this is the beginning of that warning so that is my manifestation," Villar added.
