Inch by inch

Finally, the impeachment complaint against Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez is moving. Just today, the complaints filed by former Akbayan Representative Riza Hontiveros et. al., and the other one from the Bayan Muna camp have been declared sufficient in form and in substance.

Merci is unfazed, though. We should not be surprised. It's taking her long to internalize things or feel everything through her bones. Kaya nga usad-pagong ang mga kaso dahil sa sobrang bagal niya mag-internalize, di ba? At kaya nga nagwal rin si Capt. Rolando Mendoza.

But we should not blame Merci for her usad-pagong na galaw. Malay natin, nature na talaga yun. Pinag-iisipan niya lang na maigi. So kung mamatay na ang mga may kasalanan na hindi pa nasi-sintensiyahan, ayos lang. Whether or not sintensiyahan sila, mamatay din lang naman sila. Ganun din ang logic sa government service. Whether or not gawin nila ang trabaho nila sa Sandigan, sasahod din naman sila. O di ba?

Could it be that the delay is caused by the alleged extortion in the Office of the Ombudsman? Ramon Tulfo writes that Deputy Ombudsman Emilio Gonzales demanded money from Capt. Mendoza hence the delay. Link for Tulfo's post is here.
