DoJ chief Leila de Lima nominated to replace Ombudsman Gutierrez

By Tetch Torres, INQUIRER

MANILA, Philippines — Justice Secretary Leila De Lima has been nominated to fill the post vacated by Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez.

In a one page letter, Assistant State Prosecutor Romeo Senson said De Lima would be the best person to be the next Ombudsman.

Senson said De Lima has displayed an “incorruptible stand, integrity beyond reproach and character par excellence in public service.”

He also noted that De Lima did a good job as head of the Commission on Human Rights.

As then CHR chief, De Lima had grilled Senson over the arrest of the 43 health workers who were accused as members of the New People’s Army.

Senson had recommended the filing of a case against the 43 for violation of Presidential Decree 1866, as amended by Republic Act (RA) 8294 and RA 9516, which imposes penalties for illegal possession of grenades and other explosives.

He said that the health workers also violated the Commission on Elections Resolution 8714 in relation to Article 261 (q) of the Election Code, which bans firearms during the election period.

The DoJ later sought the withdrawal of the cases that led to the release of the health workers last December.
