MANILA, (PNA) — Justice Secretary Leila M. De Lima on Thursday said she will just await the announcement of President Benigno S. Aquino III whether he accepts or not the resignation of National Bureau of Investigation Director Nonnatus Caesar R. Rojas.
De Lima also confirmed she failed to convince Rojas to withdraw his irrevocable resignation.
De Lima said she tried to convince Rojas thrice, but he maintained it was his final decision.
Aside from not coping up with the intense “pressure” in work, De Lima said, Rojas is also suffering from health problem.
De Lima added President Aquino has also conversed with Rojas, but the resigned NBI chief was also not persuaded to stay.
