On ex-Commissioner Faeldon’s reported call for a review of legislative immunity

This Faeldon never ceases to amuse me. After displaying ignorance of the provisions of the Tariff and Customs Code of the Philippines imposing zero tariff on cement importation to the Philippines from another ASEAN country under AFTA, he is now calling for a review of the legislative immunity granted to the senators and congressmen, not understanding that it is a constitutional provision which says, “No Member shall be questioned nor be held liable in any other place for any speech or debate in the Congress or in any committee thereof.” (Sec 11, Art VI)
