Senator Pimentel already apologized to MMC and begged for the understanding of the general public for what had happened.
In an interview GMA-7 radio station DZBB-594, Senator Richard Gordon called on the public to be more understadning of Senator Pimentel:
“Kilala ko si Koko. Matinong tao ‘yan, hindi salbahe yan, hindi nang-aabuso. Huwag naman nating pagpiyestahan,” said Gordon.
“Now is not the time na magsisihan tayo. I think nag-apologize na ‘yung tao. Alam mo, bagong kasal ‘yan at may anak siyang Cesarean ang mangyayari.” added Gordon.
