#SHORTS: Cebu officials: Sack Aguirre, chase big-time drug peddlers; Sereno to detractors: ‘Fight for rule of law’; Outcome of Lim’s case gives Mike Rama hope

SACK. At least two local officials expressed dismay at a justice department task force’s resolution to drop criminal complaints against Cebu-based businessman Peter Lim and Rolando “Kerwin” Espinosa Jr.

FIGHT. Embattled Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno challenged her detractors to begin the impeachment trial against her in the Senate as she reiterated she will not heed to the calls for her to resign.

HOPEFUL. Former Cebu City mayor Michael Rama is hopeful that his name will be removed soon from a list of alleged drug protectors named by President Rodrigo Duterte nearly two years ago.
