DOJ Sec. Aguirre Orders NBI To Probe Opposition Politicians Linked to Destabilization Plot vs. Pres. Duterte


The Department of Justice through Secretary Vitalinao Aguirre II orders the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and mobilized its agents to investigate opposition politicians who may be planning to overthrow the government of Pres. Rody Duterte.


Sec. Aguirre issued Department Order No. 385 on June 7, 2017 directing the NBI to conduct a prbe and case build-up against "some senators and other opposition leaders" linked to the alleged destabilization plot against the Duterte administration.

Although the Justice Department did not give specific names of opposition personalities subject of the investigation, the order was issued on the same day he disclosed during a press conference that Senator Antonio Trillanes IV and Sen. Bamb Aquino, together with Magdalo Party-list Rep. Gary Alejano, and the former political adviser of Pres. Aquino Ronald Llamas, had a meeting with Alonto and Lucman political families prior to the attacks caused by the Maute Group in Marawi City.


Sec. Aguirre noted that the said meeting could be part of moves to destabilize the Duterte administration and have sparked the terrorist attacks in the city, but the DOJ Secretary also clarified that he was misquoted by the press and cleared the Lucman and Alonto families of participation in the alleged meeting.

The statement of the DOJ Secretary also caught the ire of the personalities he mentioned as they showed proof that they were not in Marawi City during the alleged meeting.

Some netizens lauded the moves made by the Department of Justice as they released some names of opposition who attended an alleged meeting and wait for the opposition politicians to came out so that the DOJ can make a follow up and investigate those who were allegedly involved in the alleged destabilization plot.
