Trillanes wants to hold hearings

According to a PDI story
"More than 84 bills, including one that will raise the salaries of the more than one million government employees, are dead in the water as detained Senator Antonio Trillanes IV is not allowed to conduct public hearings in his detention cell at the Marine brig in Fort Bonifacio, his chief of staff said."
which is why
"Trillanes... has submitted a formal complaint before the Senate after the Armed Forces of the Philippines stopped him from holding a hearing at the Marine brig headquarters on September 27 (as a) way of seeking help in his situation."
If Sen. Trillanes is really concerned about the bills, he would let the Vice-chairman of his committee to conduct the hearings on his behalf since he is indisposed.
