Baguilat: Dismissal of impeachment complaints vs SC justices ‘inevitable’
Ifugao Representative Teddy Baguilat Jr. expect the impeachment complaints he filed with other opposition congressmen against 7 Supreme Court (SC) justices will not gain ground.
The House committee on justice voted 1-23 to junk the impeachment complaints filed by Baguilat, Albay 1st District Representative Edcel Lagman, and Magdalo Representative Gary Alejano against the following:
SC Chief Justice Teresita de Castro
Associate Justice Diosdado Peralta
Associate Justice Lucas Bersamin
Associate Justice Francis Jardeleza
Associate Justice Noel Tijam
Associate Justice Andres Reyes Jr
Associate Justice Alexander Gesmundo
“I feel the inevitability of losing in this committee of justice hearing. We simply don’t have strength of numbers. And as argued, impeachment is a political exercise,” said Baguilat.
“But listening to Cong Edcel Lagman rebut all the manifestations, I can say we have strength of argument,” he added.
You fought a noble fight, Cong. Teddy!
