Robredo camp to DOJ : Be fair

Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo has called out the Department of Justice (DOJ) through media to be fair.

The Department of Justice will start its preliminary examination of the sedition charge against her and some 35 other personalities with respect to the videos released by Bikoy.

“Pinanghahawakan namin iyong sinabi ni [Justice] Secretary [Menardo] Guevarra that they will try to ensure na patas itong prosesong ito,” Robredo’s spokesman Barry Gutierrez said in a media.

(We hold on to the statement of Secretary Guevarra that they will try to ensure a fair process.)
“So what we’re asking the DOJ to do is sabihan naman niyo iyong mga complainants na pulis, na iyong sinasabi nilang resulta ng imbestigasyon, iyong sinasabi nilang ebidensyang hawak nila, bigyan kami ng kopya para naman maayos iyong maging sagot namin at maging patas iyong laban,” he added.
(So what we were asking the DOJ is to tell the complainants, which are the police, to give us a copy of the results of the investigation, that they have evidence, so we can reply for this to be a fair fight.)

The Vice President’s spokesperson and her lead counsel Marlon Manuel were together when they asked the DOJ to order the Philippine National Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP CIDG)to present the evidence in its custody against  Vice President Robredo.
The Robredo camp told the DOJ that the “submission of the counter-affidavit be deferred pending receipt of evidence if any.”

Manuel cites, Rule 112 of the Rules of Court, “the respondent shall have the right to examine the evidence submitted by the complaint which he may not have been furnished and to copy at his expense.”

“Kaya nga sa puntong ito, ang gusto namin, play fair, ‘di ba. Ipakita niyo iyong buong ebidensya (That’s why at this point we want is they play fair. Present all your evidence),” he said.

“Galangin niyo iyong karapatan ng mga respondents sa isang criminal investigation. Sundin niyo iyong sarili niyong mga patakaran para hindi na lang magulat tayo isang araw at mayroon nang resulta itong hindi inaasahan ng kahit sino,” he added.
(Respect the rights of the respondents in a criminal investigation. Follow your own rules so we won’t be surprised that one day it already has results unexpected by everyone.)
