4 in contempt for hearing snub to be arrested

Gordon said Poe personally told him she is ready to swap the public services committee with the Blue Ribbon if he wants to.

Senator Richard Gordon on Thursday cited five persons in contempt for failing to attend the resumption of the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee inquiry into the P6.8 billion shabu smuggling at the Bureau of Customs (BoC).

Gordon also ordered the arrest of former Philippine National Police Senior Supt. Eduardo Acierto, ex-Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency Deputy Director for Administration Ismael Fajardo, broker Marina Signapan and Evelyn Laquingan of Vecaba shipping.
