Atty. Barry Gutierrez
Legal Adviser, OVP
VP Leni’s statement last December was an honest and candid account of the briefing that the leadership of the AFP provided to the Vice President and her senior staff. Far from fostering “intrigue,” it served to underscore the professionalism of our armed forces, and assure the public of the unity of AFP leadership in their firm commitment to the Constitution. Hopefully, Secretary Go can likewise be as honest and candid with regard to the issues he is currently facing. By answering the matter squarely, he will also assure our people of his, and the administration’s, commitment to truth and accountability.
