Speaking to the media, ANGKLA Party-list Rep. Jesulito Manalo said, “You cannot impeach someone for an offense that’s not related to his office.”

The Free Legal Assistance Group (FLAG), which faced the press with Lascañas, said the ex-cop’s tale of Duterte’s role in the death squad killings in Davao could be a basis in filing an impeachment complaint against the President.

But Manalo, a lawyer by profession, noted that grounds for impeachment must have “something to do with the functions of the person in his office to which he is being charged or questioned.”
