Bongbong Marcos can become the first Filipino to be charged or detained for the offense of “obstruction of injustice” in the Congress. This is a clear usurpation act by House Committee Chair, Johnny Pimentel. The only way he can redeem his name is to edit the charge. Instead of his “obstruction of justice” allegation, he has to revise it to “obstruction of injustice” against Marcos. This might compensate for the injustice to Marcos of being robbed of the Vice Presidency in the 2016 elections.

Arrest Bongbong Marcos?
Many people resist the obvious abuse of power in the 16th Congress. Bongbong Marcos just shrugs off the news of Pimentel’s threat to arrest him. This is on his advice to sister, Gov. Imee Marcos not to attend the July 25 hearing on the alleged tobacco anomaly. Johnny Pimentel’s big words must be put to the test. He may report Marcos to the Batasan for arrest and detention by him.
The Controversial Detention
Pimentel for sure will not make the arrest. He may even shut up. The confidence of most Filipinos is already shaken. The country’s prestige to be the defender of democracy have been hurt by these abusive congressmen. They display a degree of tyranny that they accuse the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos of. They should free the Ilocos 6 ASAP to save the Congress.
Power Abuse of the Congress
The abuse lies in the takeover by a House committee of such power that belongs to the executive and to the judicial branch. The heart of the danger is the fact that the government allows itself to be ruined by some ambitious and ruthless political leaders.
Anti-Usurpation Move by the Supreme Court
Associate Justice Bienvenido Reyes calls on his colleagues to continue the fight for judicial independence. “Protect the Supreme Court from the unsavory meddling of those who are trying to taint its integrity.” He mentioned the threat of House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez to impeach Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno for her call to the CA justices to defy the House’s show- cause order against the three magistrates who issued the release of Ilocos 6.
