THEY WERE ‘WASTE’

Sun.Star Cebu - - NEWS PLUS -

WERE DOC­U­MENTS SHRED­DED at the Depart­ment of Jus­tice last April 5 be­fore the takeover of the new sec­re­tary who suc­ceeded Vi­tal­iano Aguirre II? Ex­am­ine Aguirre’s de­nial:

If there were, he didn’t know any­thing about it;  As­sum­ing there were, the pa­pers shred­ded were waste, un­used and un­needed;

It would ben­e­fit the new DOJ chief, as the of­fices were cleaned up for his com­ing.

How could Aguirre be sure the doc­u­ments shred­ded were waste? He didn’t know any­thing about it, he said. Who gave the or­der and who cer­ti­fied that what were shred­ded were of no use? Did it fol­low pro­to­col?

The tim­ing was bad, es­pe­cially that Aquirre had var­i­ous con­tro­ver­sial and ques­tion­able transactions dur­ing his term.
