Laban o bawi? Fariñas may recommend ethics raps vs. Alejano if…

House Majority Floor Leader Rodolfo Fariñas may recommend the filing of an ethics case against Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano if he pushes through with filing a complaint against President Rodrigo Duterte before the International Criminal Court (ICC).

“Kung magpa file siya sa ICC e di baka i-recommend ko rin para… malaman din naman niya kung talagang…,” he said when asked about the matter in a press conference Wednesday (May 17).

Fariñas said Alejano appears to be following a strategy aimed at having the ICC start an investigation on Duterte when he filed an impeachment case against the President back in March.

“All of these have been dismissed. Anong sabi niya, ‘We’ll go to the ICC.’ So, they have a parang strategy na sinusunod,” he said.

Nevertheless, Fariñas expressed confidence that the ICC cannot interfere in the country’s politics since it only deals with criminal offenses, while the impeachment proceedings that the House just junked is an administrative action.
