Aguirre Questions Father Reyes Silence on Cases of Priests Molesting Minors

Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II castigated the activist and running priest Father Robert Reyes who asked for his resignation amid doubts about his department's impartiality in handling the investigation of the death of Grade 11 student, Kian Loyd Delos Santos.
In a report of GMA News, Reyes said Aguirre must quit for "making a mockery of the justice system."

However, Aguirre speaks up and denied the allegations that he bias in the case of Delos Santos. He assured that he would not meddle in the case which is pending before the National Prosecution Service.

During interview, Aguirre said:
I am just wondering why in the face of reports of Filipino priests molesting minors, of Filipino priests fathering children, of Filipino priests bringing minor girls to motels and those Filipino priests molesting sacristans, the good Fr. Reyes is surprisingly silent on these serious matters involving Filipino minors.

Maybe it is just me, but I cannot help but wonder.

While I respect the view of everyone to express themselves freely, I will stay for as long as I enjoy the trust and confidence of the President.
