Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte has requested the Department of Justice (DOJ) to find out if a senator was abetting the rise up launched by the Maute terror group in Marawi City.
Curiosity struck President Duterte’s daughter after watching Senator Risa Hontiveros who claimed the Marawi siege doesn’t represent a rise up based mostly on the nation’s legal guidelines.
“Question lang sa DOJ, kung rebellion ang crime and this woman is saying it is not rebellion, are her words encouraging them to commit the crime? And so it becomes abetting rebellion?” Mayor Duterte wrote on Facebook.
“She works for the government that the terrorists are fighting… paki explain beh. Wala gyud ko kasabot,” she mentioned.
Rebellion and lawless violence had been the causes utilized by the President to declare a 60-day martial legislation in Mindanao final month. Hontiveros is amongst the few senators who’ve known as for a joint session of Congress to overview Duterte’s martial legislation proclamation to verify if it has foundation or not.
