Watch your back veep.

Senator Panfilo Lacson has an apparent warning to Vice President Leni Robredo not to allow herself to be used by groups with selfish political interests.

“They are leading her to the quicksand to advance their own political interests. I hope she realizes it sooner than later. Sayang,” Lacson tweeted without naming Robredo.

Robredo is under fire for alleged involvement in the attempt to impeach President Duterte after releasing a video message to the United Nations denouncing the government’s brutal war on illegal drugs. As a result, the President’s top ally in Congress, Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, is mulling an impeachment complaint against Robredo for supposed betrayal of public trust.

Lacson, in another tweet, called on Robredo to correct her figures on the drug-related deaths given to the UN.

“She reported to the UN that 7k were summarily executed. Fact is, govt side suffered 38 casualties in 2k police opns. She should correct it,” he tweeted.

“I’ve no agenda except fairness based on facts. We owe it to the 38 PNP and AFP personnel killed and 86 wounded in action as of Jan 28, 2017,” he said.
