“We were able to learn a lot of things, and we confirmed the things we already knew. Very productive, it was free and honest. I felt our resource person was much more comfortable,” Senator Grace Poe told reporters after an executive session with relieved PNP Special Action Force chief Director Getulio Napeñas on Monday, February 16.
The session started 1:15 p.m. and lasted for approximately four hours. Senators will again go to an executive session today, this time resigned chief Alan Purisima and current Intelligence Group director Chief Superintendent Fernando Mendez will be asked.
“For one, we didn’t actually time, more than five minutes were given to answer the questions. It was more informal, the exchanges were more random. We went into many details because we only had one resource person. We told him to narrate many different things,” Poe added.
The senator said they will decide on what topics will be disclosed to public. “I will not spell out the details of the executive session until we have come up with a consensus on which topics can be made available.”
