House panel formally junks Rody impeach rap

The House Committee on Justice yesterday formally dismissed the impeachment complaint filed against President Duterte and assured the Chief Executive that no other impeachment complaint will be filed against him.

The panel chaired by Oriental Mindoro Rep. Reynaldo Umali unanimously approved the committee report and the resolution dismissing the impeachment complaint filed by Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano against Duterte.

“By unanimous vote, the committee report and resolution dismissing the verified complaint for impeachment and supplemental complaint affidavit filed by Rep. Gary Alejano against President Rodrigo Duterte, effectively putting a one year ban on any and all impeachment complaints that may be filed against the President, is hereby approved unanimously,” Umali said during a hearing that lasted only 20 minutes.
