From the Inquirer: “President Rodrigo Duterte himself would review the Department of Justice (DOJ)’s controversial dismissal of drug charges against alleged big-time drug lords, Malacañang said Tuesday.
“xxx (O)n (his spokesperson’s) Facebook, Duterte vented his ire against Secretary of Justice Vitaliano Aguirre II after the reported dismissal of drug charges against alleged big-time drug lords Peter Lim and Kerwin Espinosa, along with several others.
” “PRRD: (on DOJ dismissal of case vs Lim and Espinosa) I will invoke my power of supervision and control and will review dismissal,” xxx on Facebook.
“PRRD to SOJ: Pag-nakawala yan si Lim at Espinosa, sya [Aguirre] ang ipapalit ko [If Lim and Espinosa escape, I will put him in jail.) I can review that dismissal order. Nag-amin na nga sa Congress! Why not admit it as evidence against him?” (on his spox’s FB)
♠♦♣ ♠♦♣ ♠♦♣
Question: Has he issued instructions to forward the file to him for review?
Has he even summoned the DOJ secretary and the prosecutors responsible as part of his supervisory function over the DOJ ?
Has Duterte issued an order to stay the dismissal order of his prosecutors?
