Lawyer dismisses Hontiveros’ call for SolGen Calida to resign due to graft: “Walang propaganda value. Mukha lang siyang sumusundot ng isyu”

I don’t know if Senator Risa Hontiveros cares about her image being the favorite punching bag on social media. Either she is simply clueless or in it for the publicity.

On Monday, May 28, 2018, Hontiveros took to Facebook asking President Duterte to fire SolGen Calida because of graft.

In another instance, she called on Calida to resign from his post as the Solicitor General.

According to Hontiveros, Calida owned a security agency who won several huge contracts from the government.

CTTO.

However, lawyer Trixie Cruz-Angeles remarked that Senator Hontiveros is simply making noise to scare Calida since he has been very effective as Duterte’s SolGen.

Check out the full text of Angeles’ FB post below.

“So hinamon ni Sen. Hontiveros na mag resign si SolGen. Dun pa lang sa word na “resign” alam nyo na, na yung isyu na ibinabato kay SolGen ay mahina lalo na kung gagawing kaso.

Ayon sa senadora, si SolGen daw ay may security company na nakakuha ng government contracts na malalaki. Stockholder daw kasi itong si Calida.

Eto ang problema ng reklamadadora. Magkkaroon lang ng graft kung ang kumpanya kung saan may shares of stock si Calida ay pumasok sa isang kontrata at nag intervene duon si Calida mismo in his official capacity. Halimbawa, Office of the Solicitor General ang nag hire ng kumpanya.

Dito sa kasong ito, hindi OSG ang nag hire sa kumpanya, at dumaan ito sa tamang proseso ng bidding.

Pero alam naman natin na hinihito ni senadora si SolGen dahil effective si Calida.

Kung sana sina Senadora ginagalingan din, ok lang sana. Pero ito, ni walang propaganda value. Mukha lang siyang sumusundot ng isyu.”

Netizens seems to share Angeles’ sentiment as shown in the comments below.

“Nagmamagaling. Pero marami naman siya consultants ah.”

“Atty wala.na yatang ginagawa ang ilang mamambatas kundi bantayan ang galaw ng Pres at ilang lingkod na nagtratrabaho ng maayos.”

Jusme, wala ng pag-asa yang Lonely P*kp*k na yan…let’s assume napag-utusan lang siya tumahol…c’mon, with a bit of common sense naman papalag na ako…imagine her stupid image will be tainted for life…20 years from now…mahihiya siya sa mga sinasabi niya…
