VP Robredo on impeachment threats, she wont back down from it

The threat of impeachment has reached the Vice President and she will face such scenario head on.

Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission Commissioner(PACC) Manuelito Luna accused for being supportive of the United Nation Human Right Council’s (UNHRC) probe into the government’s drug war, some sectors have called this act as being a traitor to her own government which she also has sworn to protect.

In her weekly weekend radio show, the Vice President’s spokesperson Atty. Barry Gutierez said Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo is ready to face any impeachment cases that will be filed against her.

“Ang taong walang kasalanan, walang kinakatakot sa imbestigasyon. Paulit-ulit na ring sinabi ni VP Leni: ‘Kung gusto ninyo mag-file ng impeachment, sige lang. Handa akong harapin iyan.’ ‘Di ba? Dahil naka-angkla iyan sa Konstitusyon,” Lawyer Barry Gutierrez said.

“Kung tingin talaga ng ating mga kinatawan sa Kamara de Representante ay may batayan, eh ‘di handa siyang harapin, dahil alam naman niya na wala siyang maling ginagawa, tapat niyang tinutupad ang kaniyang sinumpaan sa ilalim ng ating Konstitusyon,” he added.

PACC’s Luna said of the Vice President, “For the nth time, she has made it appear that the government is guilty of human rights abuses, and that’s betrayal of public trust. It’s about time that she should be held to account for her political sins against the Filipino people,”

Gutierrez has branded the statement of PACC as act to gain popularity.

“Feeling ko talaga ang punto naman talaga diyan, para sumikat, eh. Kasi ang impeachment, iyan ay isang proseso na nagsisimula sa Kongreso. Sa pagkakaintindi ko, hindi naman miyembro ng Kongreso itong taong ito,” he said

The Vice President spokesperson in addressing the accusation of the PACC that Robredo is guilty of “betraying the public’s trust” 
said that such cannot be done by Robredo.

“Kapag binanggit natin betrayal of public trust na isa na namang batayan sa impeachment, usually ito ‘yung my kinalaman sa paglabag dun sa iyong oath of office. Anong bahagi noong oath of office na nilabag? Tayo ay bahagi nga ng iyong human rights council,” he said
