Statement of Sen. Kiko Pangilinan on report that DOJ secretary will be fired

From one blunder to the next, Secretary Aguirre, wittingly or unwittingly, has been showing how unfit he is for the position.

From being linked to the P50-million bribery scandal involving resigned Immigration officials who are his fraternity brothers, to spreading false information against lawmakers over the Marawi siege, to downgrading the murder charges against Supt. Marvin Marcos to homicide despite Senate and NBI findings, to clearing Nick Faeldon and several Customs officials in the P6.4-billion shabu smuggling case, to the continuing drug trade in the National Bilibid under his watch, and to dismissing the drug charges against Kerwin Espinosa and Peter Lim -- the list of his inadvertence is long and serious.

One might wonder how credible the charges he filed against Senator Leila de Lima were. In one development after another, the charges are now being bared to be false and baseless.
