Look: Aguirre to file ethics complaint vs. Hontiveros

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II said Wednesday he will file an ethics complaint  against Senator Risa Hontiveros following the revelation of his assumed content trades with previous Negros Oriental Rep. Jacinto Paras amid a Senate request a week ago.

Aguirre said he would file the complaint with the Senate committee on ethics next week, contending Hontiveros abused the Bill of Rights on protection of interchanges and Republic Act 4200 or the Anti-Wiretapping Act "at the very hallowed ground of the Senate.”

The Cabinet official is readying a civil complaint for alleged invasion of his protected appropriate to security of correspondence and a criminal dissension for infringement of RA 4200 against Hontiveros.

On Tuesday, an "enrage" Aguirre slammed the alleged violation of his privacy after Hontiveros unveiled in a benefit discourse on Monday that she found through a photograph of the instant message that the Cabinet authority and Paras were wanting to bring arguments against her.



She said the photo was taken by a member of the press during the Senate hearing on the death of teenage student Kian Delos Santos on September 5.

Aguirre, however, would not comment on the content of the text messages, nor address allegations that he was plotting to bring cases against Hontiveros, whose office took custody of three witnesses to Delos Santos’ killing during an anti-drug operation in Caloocan City on August 16.

Hontiveros, meanwhile, said that there was no wiretapping involved.

“There was no intent to tap or intercept his messages. The law is clear. What is prohibited is willfully and knowingly committing any acts constituting wiretapping,” she said.
