Sereno to Pres. Duterte: Explain your family's 'unexplained' wealth




She’s back!
Ousted former Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno urges president Rodrigo roa Duterte to explain to the public his family’s supposed growing riches.
"Kung kahina-hinala na napakadami ng pera ang isang pinuno, dapat may paliwanag 'yun. At ang paliwanag na iyon ay dapat ibigay sa tao," Sereno said at the University of the Philippines Visayas in Iloilo City.

This comes after a report from the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism (PCIJ), which examined the wealth of members of the Duterte family.
Sereno also slammed Duterte for his statements attacking journalist who are critical of his administration’s policies.
"Mali 'yun kasi parang sa Constitution at sa batas natin, nandoon 'yun dapat may pakialam tayo, lalo na sa ganoong klaseng allegations na ang layo daw ng linaki ng yaman nila," she said.
Sereno explains that these allegations cannot be simply swept under the rug, since some of the President’s immediate family are implicated in the illegal drugs trade.
"At lalong-lalo na ngayon na may alegasyon pa na kailangang patunayan na ng pamilya niya na hindi totoong nagkakalat na balita na parang ang proteksyon ng droga ay mismo nanggagaling sa mga kasama niya sa kanyang pamilya," she said.
