Senate kicks out De Lima as chairman of Committee on Justice and Human Rights

SHARE:

Pacquiao's motion to oust De Lima from the CHR was approved.

On Monday, the Senate voted to expel Senator Leila De Lima from the chairmanship of the Senate Committee on Justice and Human Rights.

Senator Manny Pacquiao proposal to remove De Lima from the position was approved by sixteen senators.

Four senators vetoed and two abstained.

Senator Richard Gordon was appointed then as the new chairman of the said committee by Senate Majority Leader Vicente "Tito" Sotto.

Gordon accepted the position and promised to be "objective" as the head of the committee.

De Lima's allies, Senate President Pro-Tempore Franklin Drilon and Senator Risa Hontiveros, on the other hand, opposed the motion.

"We believe there is no basis for the motion," Drilon said.

Pacquiao made the proposal to oust De Lima after she was accused by Senator Alan Peter Cayetano that she was being biased against President Rodrigo Duterte.

Pacquiao and Cayetano both have good relationships with Duterte.

The committeeo on justice is holding a hearing on alleged extrajudicial and summary executions connected to the administration of Duterte's war on drugs.

The probe on the killings related to the president's war on drugs will continue as per Sotto.
