Vice President Leni Robredo has asked the Supreme Court (SC), sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), to investigate how the 2016 poll logs got leaked to former Biliran representative Glenn Chong.

“Atty. Chong is not a party to this election protest,” read her motion as he referred to the election protest filed against her by losing 2016 vice presidential bet, former Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.

“Meanwhile, by his own denials, Atty. Chong is not and has never been a counsel for protestant Marcos. And, if Atty. Chong were to be believed, he never at any point, represented protestant Marcos,” added her motion.

With this, Robredo asked the PET “how was Atty. Chong able to secure copies of the pleadings and resolutions of the Honorable Tribunal.”

Robredo sought the investigation after Chong presented audit logs of Ragay, Camarines Sur during a Senate hearing on electoral reforms last August 7.

Apart from this, Chong has been posting on his Faecbook page copies of the pleadings and PET resolutions.
