Congress 15 May 2017 ). Majority Leader Rodolfo C. Fariñas (left, upper picture below) gestures as he stresses a point in the course of grilling complainant Rep. Gary Alejano (Party-list, Magdalo) (middle, upper photo) on the basis for his allegations against the President. Rep. Reynaldo Umali (2nd District, Oriental Mindoro), committee chairman, said Alejano admitted he has no personal knowledge about the allegations and merely cited records of newspaper accounts. All 42 members of the House Committee on Justice present during today’s hearing voted to junk the impeachment complaint filed against President Duterte for insufficiency in substance. The committee will now prepare its report on the dismissal of the impeachment complaint and will report this out on the plenary. (PC/GE/RBB)
