ROQUE | hindi dapat maupong Prosecutor si lagman sa impeachment trial ni Bautista



Kabayan party-list Representative Harry Roque named some house representatives not to be part as one of the prosecution panel at Bautista’s trial if the impeachment case proceeds to the senate. 

He stresses out the name of Albay Representative Edcel Lagman, Dinagat Islands Representative Kaka Bag-ao, Magdalo party-list Representative Gary Alejano and Akbayan party-list Representative Tom Villarin not to be part of the prosecution panel because the names mentioned above opposes the impeachment complaint since from the start. 

"Sino sa tingin ko ang hindi pwedeng umupo doon? Siya, Congressman Lagman, at 'yung iba na sa simula't mula ay tutol sa impeachment," Roque said in a press conference in Quezon City on Thursday.
"Talagang siguradong hindi dapat umupo 'yun as impeachment prosecutors," he said.
The Committee on Justice's report dismissing the impeachment complaint against Bautista was rejected by the House of Representatives with a vote of 137-75-2.

Representative Lagman has been consistently opposing the impeachment complaint against Bautista. Lagman said that the impeachment complaint against Bautista is ‘’premature’’ for it lacks substance and sufficiency. 


"Since Comelec chairman Andres Bautista has resigned effective December 31, 2017, then any impeachment proceedings against is unnecessary because the purpose of an impeachment is ouster of the respondent," he said.

Meanwhile, Alejano thinks that Duterte’s administration seems to be targeting all independent bodies. 

"Our country is slowly heading to a crisis created by the President himself and his allies in government. They are the very persons who are destabilizing the government and the whole country," Alejano said last Wednesday in a statement. 


"I encourage the citizens to rally their support to the leaders who remain faithful to their mandates. I also urge everyone to express their dissent against the creeping authoritarianism," he added.

The 11-member prosecution panel from the House of Representatives will be elected in the plenary, according to Majority Leader Rodolfo Fariñas.
