Unite, mga ka-DDS! Imee Marcos finds ally in Antonio Contreras over ‘Ilocos 6’ detention
There’s a war in the North, and Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos is backed by professor Antonio Contreras.
Ilocos Norte 1st District Representative and House Majority Leader Rodolfo Fariñas had initiated a probe into the province’s tobacco funds, saying it is illegal to use it to purchase motor vehicles.
So far, the victims of this Ilocos Norte civil war are 6 provincial officials who were detained by the House committee on good government and public accountability because they supposedly gave “dismissive” answers during a hearing on May 29.
Bot Contreras in a Facebook post reasoned Fariñas should have brought his case to the Ombudsman if the purpose was to expose alleged anomalies.
“Ordering the detention of persons appearing in any Congressional inquiry is plain abuse of power and a violation not only of the Bill of Rights but also of Section 21 above,” said Contreras, whose post was shared by Marcos on her wall.
Wow, the President’s men are fighting! Kanino kaya kakampi si Digong?
