Robredo should face NBI probe for 'competing' COVID-19 relief - PACC Commissioner

The Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) has suggested that the National Bureau of Investigation should look into Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo’s own fund drive and relief operations for COVID-19 health workers and frontliners since these "compete with" or are "calculated to undermine" the Duterte administration's efforts.

The Vice President should be investigated for openly competing with the government’s efforts to address the COVID-19 pandemicthis according to Commissioner Manuelito Luna of the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC)

Robredo’s action maybe in violation of the government's policies in addressing the pandemic, the PACC commissioner claimed.

Luna said, Robredo should not compete or undermine the efforts of different government agencies since there are already allotted funds for relief assistance.

"Being a part of the national government, Robredo is barred from competing with the Department of Health, Department of Social Welfare and Development and the Office of Civil Defense or the National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council..." he said.

Luna cites the act of the Vice President providing free shuttle service and dormitories for frontliners as well as medical gear donations for health workers, among others.
