Bayan Muna Representative Teddy Casiño let loose some unparliamentary language on Tuesday after a House committee adjourned a hearing without voting on the Freedom of Information bill.

 

Jojo Malig of ABS-CBNNews.com reports Casiño, who has been pushing for passage of the bill to make government documents and records easily accessible by the public, "could only blurt out ’Pakshet inajourn!’ on Twitter after (House Committee on Public Information chairman) Evardone’s decision."

 

Casiño said the measure had enough support from House members get approved at the committee level.  The committee chose, however, to put the FOI bill as the last item on the agenda. "FOI opponents want the hearing adjourned to give way to plenary session at 4pm. Style bulok," Casiño also said over Twitter.
