House Justice on Gutierrez: Sufficient in grounds

To impeach or not to impeach Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez? That’s the issue of showdown between allies of President Aquino and former President Arroyo in the House Justice Committee. They need to vote if the impeachment complaints against Gutierrez are sufficient in grounds. And the winner is… The committee declared the complaint filed by former Rep. Risa Hontiveros and endorsed by Akbayan sufficient in grounds with votes of 41-12. Same vote was casted in reference to the complaint filed by Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan) Renato Reyes and endorsed by Bayan Muna also sufficient in grounds.

What’s now left for the Ombudsman? I think Mercy should have had resign long after President Aquino resumed office. She’s been considered as an ally of PGMA and accused of not doing her job among the many cases of massive corruption during PGMA’s reign. I just hope that these congressmen will be fair and just as they bring the issue in the floor to give justice to many Filipinos.
