Impeachment complaint against Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez

She used to play hide and seek to media people and critics. She is being slam by many people due incompetence in handling the anomalies and graft cases of higher officials especially controversies that are linked to the first family.

I'm talking about Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez, who is always under fire every time a controversy are being linked to the Arroyo administration and the first family especially First Gentleman Mike Arroyo.

Gutierrez primary duty being the Ombudsman head is to study and investigate the complaints towards government officials and many more... But the sad things is, she kept mum and blind towards the scandals that being linked to the administration and it's allies.

With her failure to investigate the fertilizer scam, old graft cases and the corruption report of the World Bank, 31 civil society has joined together to file an impeachment complaint against her.

The complaint will center on her incompetence, culpable vio­­lations of the Constitution at betrayal of public trust.

Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez has failed to uphold her mandate and failed to fulfill her constitutional duty. We don't need a puppet doll in that agency. I hope she has the delicadeza to step down.

Congressmen with pending cases at the Office of the Ombudsman must inhibit his/her self in joining the initial proceedings of the impeachment.

Still impeachment is a numbers game, even though there's a massive evidence of violations and you don't have the numbers in Congress that will approved the complaint surely nothing will happen.

I hope that this impeachment will push through and hopefully in the future we will have a true "Protector of the People" not a "Protector of the Few".
