The allegations raised by Senate witness Edgar Matobato are serious.
We must exhaust all efforts to get to the truth with due regard for our democratic processes and the rule of law.
I enjoin the public to remain vigilant and discerning as the investigation unfolds.
Related to this ongoing investigation, we are offended by Senator Cayetano’s accusation that the Liberal Party is plotting to oust the President and that I will be the intended beneficiary of this plan.
As I have reiterated time and again, it is not good for the country to go through another period of upheaval, where the common Filipino will suffer the most.
In yesterday’s Cabinet meeting, I personally made the assurance that no such plan exists and we continue to support the reforms of this administration.
