Contrary to public notion, President Rodrigo Duterte will observe the choice of Congress and the Supreme Court (SC) relating to the declaration of martial law over Mindanao.
“Mag ko-comply ang Presidente,” assured Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II on Monday (May 29).
With this, Aguirre defined Duterte was “quoted out of context” when the President stated he will ignore Congress and SC over the martial law problem.
The Secretary identified what the President meant is to particular person opinions being made over martial law.
“Ang sainsabi nya lahat ng tao na may opinion, otherwise, I will not listen to you until and unless it is the PNP and the army who is going to tell me that everything is already okay or Mr. President di pa okay,” he stated.
“Sabi ni Presidente di ko kayo pakikinggan because ‘I am the recipient of the information which you are not privy’,” he added.
