Members of the House Committee on Justice has formally approved the dismissal of the impeachment complaint against President Rodrigo Duterte.
Oriental Mindoro Congressman Reynaldo Umali, Chairman of the Justice Committee, explained that due to this the President will be immune from any impeachment for a whole year.
Members of the Committee only took 20 minutes to sign the Committee Report that junks the complaint of Magdalo Patylist Representative Gary Alejano.
The Committee had a hearing last week regarding the impeachment case against Pres. Duterte. During the hearing, it was voted that the complaint is insufficient in substance.
The complaint of Alejano was dismissed due to the Congressman’s lack of personal knowledge regarding the said ground of the impeachment.
