According to Panelo, these official will be charged for criminal negligence if there is probable cause.
"Especially the one that I understand the previous Aquino administration has prepared which they did not file." say Panelo.
When asked by the press why the previous admin failed to file the case Panelo answered, "Well I think obviously,.. They're protecting the Mighty Cigarette because if you have a case file prepared and you don't file it, there's only one reason for that. You're protecting the one, the respondent."
