Rep. Johnny Pimentel of Surigao del Sur, Chairman of the House Committee on Good Government and Public Accountability in Congress said that Bongbong Marcos can be liable for his advice to sister Governor Imee Marcos not to attend the next hearing for the Tobacco funds anomaly on July 25. The committee has to decide now whether they cite former the VP post protester, Marcos for contempt, according to Pimentel.

Obstruction of Justice
Bongbong Marcos may be charged with obstruction of justice for advising his older sister, Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos, not to attend the congressional inquiry on the alleged misuse of P66 million worth of tobacco fund.
Pimentel clarified that the “Ilocos 6’s”release is dependent on when they can truthfully answer the questions of lawmakers. He also disclosed that he signed the show cause order for the three justices of the Court of Appeals who ordered the immediate release of the detained local government employees. It orders them to explain why they should not be cited in contempt for such move.
Congress is Doing a “De Lima”
Previously, the Justice Department with Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II filed Obstruction on Justice complaint against Sen. Leila de Lima due to her advice to Ronnie Dayan not to attend a congressional inquiry on the alleged illegal drugs proliferation inside the National Bilibid Prisons.
When the House threatens Gov. Marcos that they will do a “Dayan” to her, automatically, doing a “De Lima” to her brother, Bongbong Marcos is just too obvious. It is announced in a press conference that Imee Marcos skips the hearing on July 25 due to her brother’s advice. The same advice was given by Senator Leila De Lima to Dayan. The only odd thing is, why would the Marcoses disclose the advice to the public? Are they provoking something or someone?
