INTERVIEW WITH HONTIVEROS ON WIRE TAPPING - NewspaperPH


Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II said he will not resign from his post as long as he has the trust and confidence of President Rodrigo Duterte. This, amid Senator Risa Hontiveros' call for Aguirre to quit, alleging the secretary of using his position to harass opposition senators by threatening them with lawsuits.
