Magbuklat ka nga ng dictionary: Hontiveros tells Aguirre to find meaning of decency
Senator Risa Hontiveros on Wednesday said Department of Justice (DOJ) Sec. Vitaliano Aguirre II is trying to skirt the issue on his alleged botched plot on planned cases against her by coming up with long statements and convoluted legal arguments.
But by doing so, Hontiveros said Aguirre practically confirmed the authenticity of his text conversation on the alleged “plot” against her, caught inadvertently when he was photographed attending a Senate hearing last week.
“Why is the justice secretary invoking the Anti-Wiretapping Law? Is he admitting that the text conversation is real?” she asked.
“The justice secretary accuses me of indecency and being unethical. There is nothing more indecent and unethical than being caught red-handed plotting against a senator during a Senate hearing inside the Senate,” Hontiveros said.
“Mukhang kailangang magbuklat ni Sec. Aguirre ng dictionary at i-review kung ano ang kahulugan ng decency,” she added.
