The investigation of the Senate blue ribbon subcommittee should not be stopped until we get the whole story. Not because, as Palace spokesperson Edwin Lacierda seems to imply, the Senate cannot trust the Office of the Ombudsman and the NBI to do the job. And not because, as Sen. Nancy Binay insists, the court is the only place where the issue can be resolved.
But because those entities are, from experience, going to take their own sweet time about it. And time is what the Filipino people do not have. They are going to the polls in 2016, and the information that the Senate investigation provides them about the presidential candidates (Binay is the only declared candidate, but Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano and Trillanes seem to be hopefuls—their behavior can also be judged) will be invaluable.
