Lagman to Duterte: 'Threat to fire Robredo over ‘state secrets’ utterly unnecessary'

Para kay Albay Rep . Edcel Lagman, hindi na umano kailangan bantaan ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte si Bise Presidente Leni Robredo na aalisin bilang co-chair ng Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD) kung ihahayag niya ang "mga lihim ng estado".

“Robredo knows only too well that ‘state secrets’ must not be made public nor shared with unauthorized persons in order not to jeopardize national security and she would treat classified information given to her as confidential,” ayon kay Lagman

“But why should the narco list of high profile narcotics traders and users as well as the records of those involved in extrajudicial killings related to the brutal war on drugs be elevated to the status of ‘state secrets’?” tanong ni Lagman, base sa balita mula sa Politiko.

“In America’s Old West and until now in most countries, the watchlist of dangerous criminal suspects are publicly released and posted to prevent their commission of more crimes and help in their capture,” aniya

Ayon pa kay Lagman, kahit umano noon, si Duterte ay naglabas na din ng mga pangalan ng mga high profile na suspek sa listahan ng illegal drugs.

“No less than Duterte has previously released on several occasions the names of high profile suspects in the drug list which included businessmen, politicians, generals and police officers, among others,” ayon kay Lagman

Sinabi din ni Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo nitong Linggo na maaring tanggalin ng Pangulo si Robredo sa kanyang pwesto kung ibunyag niya ang mga lihim ng estado sa mga dayuhan.
