Despite receiving help from the government, the wife of the captain of GEM-VER-1 is still angry with President Rodrigo Duterte and even wished for the ouster of the chief executive.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Mrs. Insigne expressed her disappointment over the recent statement of President Duterte that he would allow the Chinese fishermen to sail in the West Philippine Sea.
“Parang wala ng karapatan ang Pilipinas.. parang Chinese na lang yung sinusunod niya (Duterte)” Insigne said.
“Naiinis ako kanina, nanunuod ako ng TV. Naiinis ako. Sabi ko, ‘Maigi pa ngang ma-impeach siya,'” Insigne said while laughing.
Malacanang is not yet giving any statement over Mrs. Insigne’s statement.
Last week, Lani’s wife, Junel Insigne received fiberglass boat from the government and other equipment that they could use to earn a living.
Mrs. Insigne is known for being harsh to President Duterte and even challenged the Chief Executive to visit them personally in Mindoro if he really wanted to talk to them.
She even urged her husband, Junel not to meet with President Duterte when it was reported that the boat captain was invited to Malacanang.
Meanwhile, critics of the government also got the same opinion as Mrs. Insigne, saying that Duterte’s recent statement is a basis for him to be impeached.
“Yes, most definitely, absolutely that is the case because the Constitution is very clear on it. Not just territorial waters, but also the exclusive economic zone of the Philippines, the resources there are exclusively for Filipinos,” ACT-Partylist Rep. Antonio Tinio said.
However, several political allies of Duterte said that impeachment against the President is doomed to fail.
