Ombudsman on EJK probe vs. Duterte:'It can be a basis of impeachment'


Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales on Friday night hinted the possibility of President Rodrigo Duterte being investigated on alleged extrajudicial killings.

"We don't discount any possibility that we'll spare him or indict him. We are talking about possibilities. There are many possibilities,” Morales said in an interview during the UP College of Law reunion in Makati City when asked about the possibility of launching an investigation against Duterte on allegations of extrajudicial killings.

Morales also said that the Ombudsman may conduct a probe on a person who has immunity from charges "for purposes of determining whether there's a misconduct."
She added that if misconduct is proven, "it can be a basis of impeachment if it amounts to the grounds of impeachment under the constitution." [source]
