Senator Chiz Escudero on Thursdya, October 19 said during the weekly Senate press event “Kapihan sa Senado” that the past Aquino government also threatened Ombudsman of impeachment and successfully impeached the then sitting Supreme Court Chief Justice.
“Hindi ba’t tulad ng ginawa ng nakaraang administrasyon, tinakot ng impeachment ang dating Ombudsman, nag-resign na lang. In-impeach and nakaupong chief justice, na-impeach,” the senator said.
He added that three incumbent senators and a direct predecessor were all detained during the past administration. “Nagpakulong ng tatlong nakaupong senador at kaniyang predecessor, wala naman nagsabing papunta tayo sa diktadurya noon.”
“Sa nagsasabing papunta sa diktadurya si Pangulong Duterte dahil sa ginagawa nya kay Ombudsman at chief justice, baliktanawan natin ang ating kasaysayan,” he added.
“Ngayon may impeachment process, may isang senador na napakulong. Halos parang pareho parang kinokopya yung nangyari sa ating kasaysayan na wala namang alegasyon na gaya ng binabatong alegasyon ngayon sa administrasyon,” he noted.
