The Senate adjourned on Thursday night without ratifying extradition treaties between the Philippines and three countries.

Even with foreign diplomats in the Senate gallery, the chamber failed to muster the 16 votes it needed to ratify extradition treaties with Spain, India and the United Kingdom.

When the roll call was called at past 4 p.m., only 14 senators were present on the Senate floor.

The Senate instead approved local bills, such as the measure upgrading the Cotabato City District Engineering Office, the bill creating a new barangay in Occidental Mindoro, and proposed legislations allowing the construction of fish ports. Andreo Calonzo/BM, GMA News
