MANILA, Philippines—Senator Antonio Trillanes  IV  has withdrawn his motion to cite for contempt the  two executives of  Hilmarc’s Construction  Corporation after they finally showed up during  the last Senate hearing on the controversial Makati City Hall 2 parking  building.

The two were Engineer  Efren  Canlas  and Robert Henson, chairman and president of Hilmarc’s, respectively,  who  were recommended  to  be cited  for  contempt by Trillanes during the  hearing of the Senate  blue ribbon subcommittee last October  8  for repeatedly  snubbing its  proceedings.

“Hence, the  contempt recommendation was withdrawn,”  he added.
