Senator Risa Hontiveros on Wednesday mentioned Department of Justice (DOJ) Sec. Vitaliano Aguirre II is attempting to skirt the problem on his alleged botched plot on deliberate circumstances in opposition to her by developing with lengthy statements and convoluted authorized arguments.
But by doing so, Hontiveros mentioned Aguirre virtually confirmed the authenticity of his textual content dialog on the alleged “plot” in opposition to her, caught inadvertently when he was photographed attending a Senate listening to final week.
“Why is the justice secretary invoking the Anti-Wiretapping Law? Is he admitting that the text conversation is real?” she requested.
“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 mentioned.
“Mukhang kailangang magbuklat ni Sec. Aguirre ng dictionary at i-review kung ano ang kahulugan ng decency,” she added.
