Senator Antonio Trillanes IV has apologized to his colleague, Senator Alan Peter Cayetano after they were both involved in an intense argument during a Senate hearing last week.

Trillanes made his apology and explained his untoward actions through a letter sent to Cayetano's office on Monday, GMA News reported.

"This is to express my apologies for my demeanor during last Thursday's hearing of the Committee on Justice and Human Rights. It was brought about because of the intense passion and emotion of the moment. Nonetheless, it was uncalled for," the letter read.

"Be assured that such incident will not happen again," it added.

The letter was also sent to Senate President Aquilino Pimentel and Senator Leila de Lima who was chairing the Senate hearing when the argument occurred.

Trillanes’ apology comes days after he said he did not regret his actions against Cayetano.

Last Thursday, Cayetano and Trillanes became entangled in an altercation during the Senate's hearing on extrajudicial killings.

Trillanes initially argued that Cayetano was taking up too much time in questioning the witness but he shot back saying he had the right to do so as a senator which almost led to a fistfight.
