Kahihiyan: Gary Alejano tells Aguirre to resign over Napoles protection

0 613

It’s the grandest insult to the country’s justice system.

Magdalo Party-list Rep. Gary Alejano could not stress enough just how humiliating the Philippines is, following the acquittal of admitted drug trader Kerwin Espinosa and now, witness protection provided for alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim-Napoles.

On Friday, March 16, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced that they are have granted provisional protection for Napoles, years after being put under trial for multiple counts of plunder.

“The department that is supposed to be the bastion of justice has become a clearing house of those who violated laws of the land and has been used instead to harass the opposition,” Alejano said in disgust.

“I call on Secretary Aguirre to resign and spare the whole DOJ from further destruction and embarrassment. His failure to perform his duties with utmost competence and fairness has been a huge disappointment.”
