Robredo has 'zero credibility' to speak on drugs campaign - Malacanang

Vice President Leni Robredo seems to be always in the news most especially since she made public her 40-page drug report being implemented by the Duterte administration despite being co-chair of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD) for a measly 18 days.

Presidential Spokesperson and Presidential Legal Adviser Atty. Salvador Panelo said the Vice president has “zero credibility and competence” to speak about the Duterte administration’s policy against the crackdown of the illegal narcotics trade.

Panelo made this remark after Vice President Robredo accepted House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano’s invitation to appear before a congressional hearing on her 40-page report that contains findings and recommendations on the government’s drug war.

Panelo said Malacanang will not interfere in the said congressional hearing principally because they are done in aid of legislation.

“It is the call of the House of Representatives if it feels that Vice President Ma. Leonor Robredo and her report as former Co-Chairperson of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD) will enlighten them,” Panelo said.
“As far as the Office of the President is concerned, however, Ms. Robredo has zero credibility and competence with respect to the government's war on drugs,” he added.

Panelo reiterated that the Vice President was simply desperate to be “politically relevant.”

He explains that instead of criticizing, Robredo.

should have instead compared the Duterte administration’s achievements to accomplishments during the previous administrations.
“What should be juxtaposed are the present achievements of the President with those, if any, of previous administrations. The latter may not even reach a significant fraction of 1 percent, using her untenable formula to criticize the drug war,” Panelo said.
