Nagkaisa ang mga netizens sa panawagan na mag-resign na si Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II.
Umabot na sa mahigit 11,000 supporters at patuloy na dumarami ang sumasali sa online petition upang ipanawagan ang pagre-resign ni Aguirre.
Ito ay kasunod ng naunang panawagan ni Senator Risa Hontiveros dahil nahuling nakikipag-usap si Aguirre sa legal counsel ng Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC) na si Jing Paras upang kasuhan ang senadora.
Ayon sa Youth Resist na siyang petitioner, ang sunud-sunod na katangahan at kapalpakan ni Aguirre ay sapat na upang ipanawagan ang pagpapatalsik dito.
“Aguirre was caught colluding with Atty. Jacinto “Jing” Paras of Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC) to expedite the filing of the case based on an outrageous accusation that Senator Hontiveros has ‘brainwashed’ the victims. Aguirre has consistently derailed justice for the youth victims of Duterte’s policy to kill with his fake news. His failures include his spreading of fake news accusing Senator Sonny Trillanes and Senator Bam Aquino of brewing up the Marawi crisis. His office also downgraded the case against the cops who killed Albuera Mayor Rolando Espinosa inside his jail cell. Aguirre also met with Jack Lam in a hotel at The Fort who is facing numerous cases.”
“Aguirre must vacate his post at once to protect the public from his machinations. A scheming Secretary of Justice is an injustice to the victims of the killings.”
