Romeo Acop (2nd District, Antipolo City), Gus Tambunting (2nd District, Parañaque City), and Lucy Torres-Gomez (4th District, Leyte), resumed Wednesday their joint inquiry into the Resorts World Manila tragedy. The RWM CCTV monitoring room personnel presented the CCTV footage which shed light among others on the lone gunman’s actions and the ‘mis-encounter’ between the Philippine National Police (PNP) Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team and the RWM special reaction team leader. Majority Leader Rodolfo C. Fariñas led the lawmakers in asking details of the RWM incident from resource persons, including taxi driver Joselito Lucena and NC Lanting Security Specialist Agency general manager Nimfa Lanting.
