Dacer kin to Senate: Tell Lacson to surrender-A A +A
Wednesday, January 12, 2011
THE daughter of publicist Salvador "Bubby" Dacer urged senators Tuesday to take more concrete action to urge Senator Panfilo Lacson to surface.
In an interview, Carina Dacer said Lacson's colleague in the Senate "should be supportive of our laws" and must direct the fugitive senator to turn himself in.
Dacer said Lacson has been in hiding for more than a year, and should be disciplined for abandoning his post.
She called on individual senators to come out with statements telling Lacson to prove his innocence in court. Dacer, however, hoped that the statements used stronger language.
Lacson and his lawyers said allegations of his involvement in the murders are motivated by politics and are payback for his crusade against corruption.
But Dacer took exception to this.
"Don't use the word 'politically-motivated'. There's no politician supporting us," she said.
She added Lacson can no longer claim that he is being persecuted by the government as "iba na yung Presidente." (Jonathan de Santos/Sunnex)
