" Nasasaktan ang tenga ko"
"Talaga namang nasasaktan ang tenga ko kasi napaka shrill ng boses mo"
"Ang importante sa isang tao ay respeto. Kng nag dedemand ka ng respeto,
respetuhin mo rin mga tao dito " (pointing to the prosecution panel).
These are striking words of Atty.Vitaliano Aguirre II during his confrontation with the senator judge Miriam Defensor Santiago after his attention was called by Sen.Jinggoy Estrada because Aquirre was noticed covering his ears while Sen Miriam castigated the prosecutors for withdrawing the 5 articles of impeachment out of 8 against Chief Justice Corona.
" I charge this private prosecutor a complaint in this court, I have an evidence right here. A video taken by Sen.Allan Cayetano and to say "nasasaktan ang tenga", you could have walked out with the permission of the court but you cannot make those contemptuous gestures and getaway with it.
Aguirre could have acted professionally while accepting the thorns thrown away to them by the judges of the court because in the first place the prosecution panel was singing out of tune ever since the concert in impeachment of Corona begun.
I am not a pro-Corona but I am pro to the idea that any leader who creates anomaly must be charged to go the hellish life that he never planned for his life. Since this country is engineered by constitution of by-laws, due process is the right thing to do. Thus, prosecutors must be equipped with evidences and all the bullets in the world not just to prosecute someone but also to defend themselves from the roaring defense team and from the judges themselves.
To reiterate Miriam, she once said " This is a serious thing, hindi tayo nandito a parang bumili lng sa isang fish vendor at pinag uusapan ang isang masilang kaso". But, the prosecutors were like playing as I observed it.
Withdrawing the 5 articles of impeachment is like killing themselves 5 times. A sign of their weakness. They are lawyers and they should know how to buy and sell ideas.To defend what they have written. To prove that the 8 articles are sounding right to prosecute the chief justice. What is happening now is like they are feeding their flesh to the lions.
The public especially those who have believed in the caliber of these lawyers are now frustrated with what are they performing. The public is much more disappointed with them for wasting the time of the leaders. There are thousands of cases pending in court. There are thousands of social programs pending in the table of the senators. There are thousands of things these leaders have promised during the election that they need to materialize. All pending.
Where is the RH BILL? Where is the GMA case? and many to mention?
The justice system in this country is like a calamity. " Kung may issue, babagyo ng batikos,babaha ng mga nagmamarunong, lilindol ng mga kasinungalingan tapos bigla na lang mawawala."
Now, the private prosecutor, the lawyer of Senator Panfilo Lacson, Davao Vice Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, and lead counsel of Hubert webb in his murder-rape case was cited in contempt.
