Quotes from the ambush interview…Β 

On issues involving STL operations:
“It seems there’s a lot of issues involved in STL operations. One consideration is that we will not incorporate the operation of STL in this bill, unless they are able to resolve or show us complete solutions to the issues surrounding the operations of STL.”
“Napakaraming allegation. Gusto ko tapusin ang hearing para magkaroon ng committee report. But then with all the issues coming out, parang lalong dumadami ang issues na unresolved.”

On the possibility of inviting Bong Pineda to the next hearing:
“We might really consider calling him to the next hearing. It seems napakarami niyang probinsyang siya nag-o-operate. At the same time, may allegations na guerrilla operations.”

On claims that STL was designed to fail:
“So far wala akong nakita, not really designed to fail. Pero input mo gambling lords … STL … na dadayain ang computation para kaunti ang remit sa PCSO mas malaki ang kanilang profit.
