Leni Robredo categorizes as one of the many exampls of mispriorities of President Duterte’s administration.

"Ang tanong nga natin: Patas at makatarungan ba ang naging desisyong ito? Isa lang ang kasong ito sa maraming patunay ng pagkiling sa makapangyarihan na nakikita natin mula sa pamahalaan. Ang nakikita natin: Kapag mahirap, may parusa; kapag mayaman at nasa poder, malaya," she said in a statement.

[Translation: We are asking if the decision was fair and just. This case is only one of the many proof that the government coddles the powerful. From what we see, the poor are punished, but the rich are allowed to be free.]

Robredo cites the US serviceman’s access to lawyers, special detention facility, quick trial, and legal options to file an appeal.Thus enjoying the resources that will get the attention of the Chief Executive. 

The Vice President also implores that the President should exercise his pardoning power in a manner fair to everybody.

"We continue to hope that the President exercises his vast powers in a manner that is fair and that benefits the common Filipino," she added.
