Petition to impeach Ombudsman Morales
The petition came after the Ombudsman released a statement that she will not probe Senator Leila De Lima’s involvement in the proliferation of illegal drug trades inside the New Bilibid Prison during her tenure as the Justice Secretary of the Department of Justice but decided to probe PNP Chief De la Rosa’s visit to watch and support Filipino Boxes Manny Pacquiao in his welterweight bout in Las Vegas.
Morales previously told reporters that her office will not launch an investigation against De Lima receiving drug money. She said “Because lahat naman allegations itong mga ito. Wala pa namang lead talaga that would prompt us to initiate our investigation,”
The Ombudsman will initiate investigation against General Bato on his trip to watch Pacman’s fight in Las Vegas.
However, in her statement, she will not investigate Delimma on alleged involvement in drug trades in Bilibid Prison despite the results of the investigation of the House.
There are many cases filed in her office of bigger gravity like the DAP, PDAF, SAF44, the Yolanda funds, etc and yet her office has seat on them.
Her action against Bato is selective prosecution as she also did on PDAF cases.
