Statement of Senator TG Guingona III on the resignation of
Ombudsman Merciditas Gutierrez

I welcome the resignation of Ombudsman Merciditas Gutierrez. It should be remembered that the partial Blue Ribbon Committee report has recommended for Ombudsman Merciditas Gutierrez to resign. The Blue Ribbon Investigations had shown that she has served as a stumbling block for the public to recover almost one billion pesos involved in the Major Gen. Carlos Garcia and Lt. Gen. Jacinto Ligot cases. This should now pave way for a speedier quest for the truth behind the anomalies in the past administration.
