Ex-IBP prexy welcomes incoming leadership’s ‘Bikoy’ probe
Former Integrated Bar of the Philippines national president Vicente Joyas on Monday welcomed the plan of the group’s incoming leader to probe the press conference of Peter Joemel Advincula Advincula alias ‘Bikoy’ at the IBP headquarters in Pasig City.
“There must be an investigation by the IBP board on the Bikoy incident to determine the accountability group of those who had participation in the arranged press conference,” Joyas stressed.
“The IBP Board must come up with the appropriate resolution which will serve as guidance in any case which may be brought against the erring officers of the IBP before the Supreme Court,” he suggested.
Just the other day, incoming IBP president Domingo Eyon Cayosa disclosed that the group will conduct a formal investigation into the controversial press conference Advincula.
In a statement, Cayosa stressed the investigation was aimed at determining the truth if some IBP officials and members sanctioned the press conference, and determine accountability if warranted.
” Be assured that we will responsibly do our job as elected leaders of the organization and safeguard the interests and integrity of the IBP,” he said.
Advincula accused President Duterte and his family of involvement in the illegal drugs trade through series of videos posted in Youtube.
