Palace downplays Joma’s plea for Duterte to jail PNoy

-

Malacañang on Thursday downplayed the appeal of Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founder Jose Maria Sison for presumptive President-elect Rodrigo Duterte to send President Benigno Aquino III and Budget Secretary Florencio Abad to prison in connection with the alleged misuse congressional pork barrel funds.

Presidential Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma said Sison’s threat is just one of the many “prospective” circumstances that may or may not happen when Duterte assumes office.

“Maraming kuwestiyon katulad niyan ay patungkol sa mga prospective action ng incoming administration at ‘nung hahaliling Pangulo. Kasi katulad niyan ‘yung ipapa-aresto, prospective, hindi naman maisasagawa ‘yan between now and June 30,” said Coloma.

“Baka naman po mas mainam na iyang mga prospective na scenario na iyan ay hintayin na lang natin na maganap sa halip na tayo ngayon ay mag-e-engage sa espekulasyon dahil baka hindi ‘yan masyadong nakakatulong sa paglikha ng isang kaaya-ayang sitwasyon na kung saan ay pwedeng magkaisa tayo at tumugon tayo doon sa lumalawak na panawagan for unity and healing in the nation,” he added.

Sison is looking forward to meet Duterte before the latter takes his oath of office on June 30.

Duterte earlier said he is open to meet with Sison to discuss the possible resumption of peace talks with the communist group.
