Justice Secretary Vitaliano N. Aguirre's Mind May Still Be Stuck In The Events Of The SAF-44 Hearing
Even if Justice Secretary Vitaliano N. Aguirre Jr. regretted not trying to patch things up with the late Miriam Defensor Santiago during the SAF-44 trial but I don't think that's why his mind is stuck on it. Maybe a lot of people already moved on from his minor offense during the Renato Corona trial. But I don't think a lot of people would have moved on from the tragedy of SAF-44.
Justice Secretary Aguirre may have indirectly patched things up with the late Santiago by not only being at his best behavior but also not siding with Alan Impurisima. He acted as Getulio Napenas' lawyer which was a wise choice. Although the late Santiago gave Napenas a sermon but it was nothing compared to that Impurisima received. Would have he chosen Impurisima as his client he would have suffered the same scathing again. He later stated that Noynoy and Impurisima broke the chain of command.
In truth, what he and President Rodrigo R. Duterte are doing right now with reopening the SAF-44 is doing what Senator Leila Dilemma and Noynoy Aquino failed to do. If what Noytards claim that the SAF-44 families were paid damages where is it? He must continue to fight the good fight of giving justice for the SAF-44.
