I cast an abstention on House Bill No. 9411, and the following is my explanation:

It is perplexing and embarrassing that while the onslaught of the Covid-19 pandemic is overwhelmingly disastrous to the Filipinos’ health and the country’s economy, the Duterte administration’s response is by inadequate phases and insufficient installments.

(Position of Rep. Edcel C. Lagman, member of the Committee on Justice, on 27 May 2021)

Distinguished Chairman Vicente “Ching” Veloso and Members of the Committee on Justice:

I respectfully submit that the impeachment complaint against Supreme Court Associate Justice Mario Victor F. Leonen is insufficient both in form and in substance pursuant to the Rules of Procedure in Impeachment Proceedings of the House of Representatives.
