The Congress has still no stand if they will remove Singson as member of the 15th Congress because they have to wait the decision of the court in Hong Kong.

Singson, son of Ilocos Sur Governor Luis Singson, was arrested at the Hong Kong Chek Lap Kok International Airport on July 11 for possession of 26.1 grams of cocaine and two tablets of valium. (Sunnex0
