Senate Demands Pastor Quiboloy’s Personal Attendance at Hearing

Hontiveros on Quiboloy: “Pag hindi siya nag-appear… aresto na ang susunod”

RISA HONTIVEROS vs QUIBOLOY – The senate panel chair insisted that the controversial religious leader must appear in person at the March 5 hearing to address allegations of misconduct, ruling out the option of virtual attendance.

“Magpakita muna sya ng kahandaang i-honor yung subpoena at humarap… Mag-appear sa harap ng komite bago siya magsubok na humingi ng ganito o ganyang arrangement sa pagharap niya sa komite,” stated Hontiveros.

Hontiveros warned that if Quiboloy fails to appear at the March 5 hearing, she will promptly issue a warrant for his arrest. “Pag hindi siya nag-appear sa March 5, aresto na ang susunod dahil iko-contempt ko siya,” she cautioned.

Senate President Juan Miguel Zubiri’s signed subpoena for the March 5 hearing is currently being dispatched to Quiboloy’s location in Davao, as confirmed by Hontiveros. “Paninindigan ng komite ‘yung subpoena, kahit nagtatago siya, isi-serve ‘yung subpoena sa kanyang known address. Mari-receive ‘yan. So ibig sabihin, makararating sa kanya. At by now, alam niya na sinasubpoena siya ng Senado,” Hontiveros assured.

Quiboloy recently claimed he is in hiding due to threats on his life, alleging an “assassination” plot orchestrated by the United States, purportedly with the approval of President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. Moreover, Quiboloy is wanted by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for charges including exploitation.

Regardless of Quiboloy’s attendance according to ABS-CBN News, Hontiveros affirmed that the Senate’s investigation into the self-proclaimed religious leader will proceed. In addition to the Senate inquiry, Quiboloy faces investigation by the House of Representatives over alleged franchise violations by his network SMNI.

Meanwhile, Pastor Apollo Quiboloy is the founder of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ, The Name Above Every Name, Inc. (KOJC). He claims to be the “Appointed Son of God” and leads a religious movement with a significant following, particularly in the Philippines and among overseas Filipino communities.
