The work suspension was approved by Senate President Vicente Sotto III and contained in an advisory signed by lawyer Myra Marie Villarica, the head of the Office of the Senate Secretary.

It added that meetings, committee hearings and other activities scheduled on Wednesday may proceed based on the discretion of concerned lawmakers and offices.
