Commission on Human Rights (CHR) Commissioner Roberto Cadiz expressed disbelief on Tuesday that the House justice panel issued a show-cause order against him.

In a copy of his response to the Nov. 27 House committee’s order sent to INQUIRER.net, Cadiz said: “I am in disbelief that the House Committee on Justice would consider citing me in contempt for my comments about the current state of democracy in our country, and specifically, about the ongoing impeachment proceedings against the Chief Justice.”

Cadiz also slammed the House panel’s move he dubbed as an “attempt by public officials to exact punishment over what they perceived to be a personal slight.”
