Walang kwenta! Aguirre says Duterte impeachment rap has no basis
Justice Secretry Vitaliano Aguirre II on Thursday (March 16) described the impeachment complaint filed against President Rodrigo Duterte as baseless.
“The impeachment complaint has no factual and legal basis,” said Aguirre in a statement.
Earlier that day, Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano filed an impeachment complaint against Duterte before the House of Representatives (HOR). It was the first ever impeachment complaint filed against the chief executive.
“The allegations in the complaint are not anchored on concrete or solid evidence that would support findngs of any of the enumerated grounds for impeachment,” reckoned Aguirre.
“Mere allegations without proof are not evidence,” he emphasized.
