Duterte to De Lima: Bakit pa mas maraming daldal? Sige na, impeach na

President Rodrigo Duterte remained unfazed despite possible moves to impeach him after his declaration that he wouldn’t allow policemen involved in the killing of former Albuera town mayor Rolando Espinosa Sr. to be jailed.

“They can go ahead. Bakit pa mas maraming daldal? Sige na, impeach na… Hayaan mo sila (Why is there so much chatter? Go, impeach me… let them do that). Sige impeachable, go ahead,” Duterte said.

On Wednesday, Sen. Leila de Lima said the statement of Duterte that he would not allow the policemen involved in the killing of Espinosa to go to jail was “bordering (on) impeachability” for committing “betrayal of public trust.

According to Chief presidential legal counsel Secretary Salvado Panelo, he said that the NBI result is yet to confirmed by the court.

"The NBI results show that the NBI does not interfere with any government agency doing their work, eh di sana iba ang resulta. But it doesn't mean NBI is correct, because the courts have to decide whether they are correct or not," Panelo said.

"The presumption of innocence applies to all criminals in this case. Moreover, the assumption of regularity has yet to be overcome, it is the duty of the President to provide and help his people to defend himself," he added.
