If girl luck is on his aspect, opposition Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV could now have the chance to grill intensely Sec. Vitaliano Aguirre II over his acts perceived by a few of his colleagues as unbecoming of a head of the Department of Justice (DOJ).
“I’m just waiting for the referral of the resolution of the speech of Sen. (Risa) Hontiveros because it might go to my committee. So I’m (probably) going to investigate him,” he stated in a tv interview Tuesday.
Trillanes was referring to his committee on civil service, authorities reorganization regulation which Hontiveros has sought to be directed at by the Senate management in taking on her privilege speech in opposition to Aguirre delivered on the ground final Monday.
Hontiveros claimed that the DOJ chief was caught red-handed plotting in opposition to her throughout a listening to by the Senate committee on public order and harmful medication on the killing of 17-year-old Kian Loyd delos Santos.
Aguirre was inadvertently captured in exchanging textual content messages to a sure “Cong. Jing”, purportedly plotting the submitting circumstances in opposition to the senator.
Trillanes supported Hontiveros’ name and which has been made a collective name of the Senate minority bloc, on Aguirre to resign from his post.
“I’ve been calling out for Aguirre for so many offenses. He was even the one who associated me with the Mautes, remember the photo coming from the fake news website? He’s been burned time and again but this one would really take the cake because it goes at the heart of his job as secretary of justice,” he stated.
