NAGA CITY — There was no seen signal that Vice President Leni Robredo was bothered by information about an impeachment case to be filed in opposition to her when she distributed money donated by a non-public firm to a few of Bicol area’s poorest villages.

If the threat made by Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez to file an impeachment case in opposition to Robredo did trouble her, the vp didn’t present it.

“I have not heard what Speaker Alvarez said but I read [about it] on social media,” Robredo stated.

“It is hard to comment since I do not know his basis. But several times our President repeated that he is sure I am not part of the destabilization plot,” she added.

Robredo stated she might solely speculate in regards to the foundation of Alvarez’s threat to file an impeachment case in opposition to her.

She stated that if it have been her supposed involvement within the impeachment case filed by Magdalo Rep. Gary Alejano in opposition to President Duterte, then Alvarez could be mistaken.

“They (Magdalo) themselves have said I was not part in the filing of the impeachment complaint (against Mr. Duterte),”  the vp stated.

She stated if Alvarez’s foundation to file an impeachment case in opposition to her could be her video message to the United Nations criticizing Mr. Duterte’s drug conflict, the Speaker would once more be mistaken.

She stated the video had been ready in February.

“It was done a long time ago,” Robredo stated. She stated it had been proven solely now in preparation for a human rights convention this month.

Robredo stated the assertion she gave to the United Nations was “very factual” based mostly on tales associated to her workplace.

She stated she had written the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) and the Philippine National Police to check with them the tales of abuses that she narrated in her video assertion “but our letter was not answered.”

Without a reply from both the DILG or PNP, Robredo stated she didn’t know the place to refer the circumstances of abuses that have been dropped at her workplace. “We had to do something,” she stated. —JUAN ESCANDOR JR.
