MANILA, Philippines - Malacañang on Tuesday challenged the critics of Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez to show proof to back up the impeachment complaints they filed against her.
In a text message to reporters, Press Secretary Cerge Remonde said evidence, and not numbers, matters in an impeachment case.
“Filing an impeachment case is easy, but proving it is one thing. In other words, it is all a matter of evidence,” Remonde said. Remonde’s remark came after five party-list congressmen endorsed the 33-page impeachment complaint filed against Gutierrez last Monday.
