Various Groups have reset the filing of an impeachment complaint against ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales to the resumption of Congressional Sessions in November.
Lawyer Manuelito Luna says that instead of 3 complaints as they initially planned, the groups will file only one complaint. The Complaints are the relatives of the SAF 44, Tanggulang Demokrasya, Vanguard of the Philippine Constitution, Negros Oriental gov roel degamo, former mrt 3 GM al Vitangcol, Atty. Glen Chong and Atty Jacinto Paras. The complaint will allege selective justice, inordinate delay in the disposition of cases and an alleged conspiracy plot against the President, including disclosures on a pending investigation.
Luna says these will be subsumed in the grounds of betrayal of public trust, culpable violation of constiotution and graft and corruption. Luna says there are already congressmen ready to endorse. Recently President Duterte revealed plans to probe the office of the Ombudsman.
Paras separately said, “We decided to file it on the resumption of session. The members of Congress are on vacation and they cannot physically sworn their endorsement now. Secondly, we have consolidated the complaints into one, meaning one complaint but many complainants for that complaint.”
Congress is on recess from October 14, 2017 – November 12, 2017
