Cardema eyeing impeachment, extortion raps vs Guanzon

/ 09:46 AM August 19, 2019

MANILA, Philippines – Former National Youth Commission chief and embattled Duterte Youth party-list nominee Ronald Cardema on Monday said he is eyeing impeachment and extortion complaints against Commission on Elections (Comelec) Commissioner Rowena Guanzon.

“Sa impeachment complaint, kung may tutulong samin, sa tingin ko meron pang mga inagrabyado ‘to, di lang naman kami, sa tagal-tagal na niya. Meron na ngang mga kumausap samin at pati sila e dinali nito dati,” Cardema said in an interview on ABS-CBN News Channel.


“Kung tutulungan kami ng mga lahat ng inagrabyado nitong tao na ‘to, baka makapag-file tayo ng isang impeachment complaint laban dito. Kasi yun lang naman ang pwedeng i-file dito sa isang impeachable officer,” he added.

Over the weekend, Cardema alleged that Guanzon hired an emissary to extort money and ask favors in exchange of the Duterte Youth party-list group’s accreditation in January.


Guanzon, however, denied the allegation ad stressed that the same is a mere publicity stunt of Cardema.

“For the past 6 months hawak mo kami sa leeg, Ma’am. Makikita mo sa mga screenshot ng texts, hawak mo kami sa leeg, nagmamakaawa kami. Habang kami sinasaksak mo paulit-ulit, sinasabi mo na ‘I’m being threatened by Cardema, Duterte Youth is like this, like that’,” Cardema said.  /gsg
