Sen. Chiz' statement on the death of Secretary Reyes

"In deference to and given the untimely demise of Sec. Reyes who once served as a soldier and co-worker in government, as co-chairman of the Senate committees conducting the inquiry given that Sen. Guingona is presently out of the country I am deferring the hearings of the Senate on the plea bargain of Garcia for a week. This would also enable all of us to take stock and gain perspective of recent events and the steps we should take in the weeks and months ahead with only the best interests of our country and people, as well as the men and women in uniform in the AFP, in mind. We likewise hereby formally convey our deepest sympathy and prayers to the family and loved ones of the late former Secretary"
