Online Work for Imee Marcos Not the Solution for Congress Abuses

It is a mockery for the Congress to prepare the Internet-equipped detention room of the elected Governor Imee Marcos for her to continue her work online. The question is not in her ability to work away from her official office but in their undemocratic approaches when there are other legal remedies available under the constitution.

[VIDEO]: Imee Marcos would still be able to work as chief executive of Ilocos should the House of Representatives order her arrested for failure to attend a hearing on her alleged misuse of tobacco funds.



Congress Turned Jail

House good government and public accountability committee chairman, Rep. Johnny Pimentel took reporters on a tour of Marcos’s “hypothetical” detention room at the extension office of Sergeant-at-Arms Roland Detabali at the third floor. It is fronting the rooftop of the main building’s South Wing.

Asked if Marcos could still do her job if she was ordered detained on a contempt citation, Pimentel said: “Probably, she can.” “There’s Wi-Fi, there’s the Internet; she’s also allowed to bring her cell phone. Actually, our rules are very liberal,” Pimentel. Yes, Liberal Party ways indeed.




No Arrest Warrant Yet

The press tour in Marcos’ detention room is ready even before the arrest warrant. This is a purely to intimidate Marcos if not mental torture. No citizen or leader for that matter should go through the ordeal under the democratic constitution. It is really clear that these lawmakers are sadistic in nature. They are not fit to create laws for the welfare of the people.









Supreme Court Supremacy

There are also the “hypothetical” detention rooms for the three justices of the Court of Appeals Special Fourth Division. They ordered the release of the so-called Ilocos Six provincial officers. The Congress cited them in contempt because of their unsatisfactory answers from May 29 until at present. The Supreme Court still has the right to intervene with the abuses of their co-equal branch. But the House headed by Pimentel and Alvarez just want to deprive them of their freedom against all odds.
