Senator Mar Roxas on Tuesday called on his colleagues to speed up the investigation on the wiretap controversy, citing the importance of bringing back the dignity of the country's military establishment.

He stressed the need to disclose who is behind the so-called order to the military to engage in wiretapping activity for political purposes.

Former T/Sgt. Vidal Doble has recently spoken to the media of his part in the wiretapping of phone conversations allegedly between President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and former Elections Commissioner Virgilio Garcillano. Doble has been eyed as a witness for Senate hearings on the issue.

Roxas said resolving the controversy would give a sense of closure to the public, and serve as basis for proposed reforms for the military institution.

Senator Mar Roxas called for hearings on the wiretap controversy that rocked the administration two years ago to be fast-tracked.

"Tama lang na ituloy na at bilisan ang hearings na ito para malaman ng sambayanan kung sino ba ang nagbigay ng order na gamitin ang military intelligence unit para sa pulitika," Roxas said.

"Ibalik natin ang dignidad sa AFP. Ang mga sundalo natin ay dapat ginagalang at sinusuportahan, hindi ginagawang private detective agency ng mga nasa poder ng pamahalaan," Roxas said.

Please no more Garci. That's for politicos suffering from lack-of-public-attention deficit-disorder with nothing substantial to say or do, and machistas who can't wait their turn in power or can't win an election in a normal fashion. Let's have a more respectable senate that works instead of the loud brainless cuckoo's nest it's been.
