Impeachment seen as option to find truths behind MoA-AD

MANILA, August 22, 2008— A Catholic bishop said an impeachment process against President Arroyo is one way of finding truths behind the controversial memorandum of agreement on ancestral domain between the government and Moro Islamic Liberation Front.

If there are people who are thinking that such procedure could be one venue to resolve the issue, Kalookan Bishop Deogracias Iñiguez is surely one of them.

“It’s (impeachment) one way to uncover truths and that is a constitutional process that maybe we should push,” he said.

But the bishop admitted the chances of Mrs. Arroyo getting through an impeachment procedure may still that dim as usual.

“As whether this will succeed or not, from what we have observed before and in the way the executive office is handling the Congress, I doubt it,” Iñiguez said.

The Church official is apparently referring to the three-rejected opposition attempts to impeach Mrs. Arroyo.

Iñiguez added several bishops already made similar sentiments against the said agreement over lack of transparency. (CBCPNews)
