Thursday, September 15, 2016, a rare scene happened at the third Senate Hearing about the alleged extrajudicial killings.

A heated conversation started between the two Senators, Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano and his seatmate Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV causing the hearing to take a 2 minute break.

After the break, Sen. de Lima officially resumed the hearing and she shared her thoughts on some issues on the committee. While she was talking, Sen. Cayetano interrupted her to request something.

But the lady Senator continued and said, "Let me finish, please. I'm the chair here, I'm the chair here." , and then the retired Navy officer, Sen. Trillanes suddenly turned off Sen. Cayetano's mic. But Sen. Alan Cayetano continued and insisted that he's respectful and just wanted to raise a different matter.

Sen. Cayetano requested to the Justice Committee Chair, Sen. Leila de Lima if he can transfer to a different location because his seatmate is trash-talking him.
I can move, can you make sure that he doesn't follow me? I will listen to you. If it takes you 2 hours, Madamme Chair, you are the Chair. I will follow.
The Committee Chair requested Mr. Trillanes to transfer, but Mr. Cayetano helped himself and moved away from his current seat location.
