Senator Sherwin Gatchalian has called for the dismissal of Philippine Ambassador to Japan Jose Laurel V for saying Cabinet members traveled to Japan as “pabuya” or reward from President Duterte.

In a post on Twitter, Gatchalian slammed Laurel for his arrogance after peddling lies and intrigues about the President’s official family.

“This guys should be fired! Instead of supporting our cabinet officials in securing projects for the benefit of people, he is spreading lies and intrigues. This is arrogance at its best!” the senator said.

Laurel earlier admitted about 20 Cabinet members were allowed to join the trip to Japan as a reward because Duterte was supposedly pleased with the election results where many administration bets won. Malacañang denied Laurel’s pabuya statement, saying the Cabinet officials were needed to help enhance the country’s ties with Japan.
