The House justice committee on Thursday junked the impeachment complaint against Commission on Elections (COMELEC) Chairman Andres Bautista for defective verification.

Chairman of the committee, Mindoro Representative Reynaldo Umali, approved the 26-2 dismissal of the complaint filed by former Negros Rep. Jacinto Paras and Attorney Ferdinand Topacio due to flawed wording in their verification that led the panel to vote insufficient in form and substance.

The impeachment complaint against the COMELEC Chief stemmed after his wife Mrs. Patricia Bautista accused him of owning unexplained wealth.
