Robredo tells donors for poll protest to go straight to SC. Here’s why

0 2

Vice President Leni Robredo has urged supporters who want to donate to her poll protest fund to go straight to the Supreme Court to give the money instead of proceeding to her office.

In an interview in Naga City Tuesday (July 11), Robredo said she cannot accept donations as a politiko.

“Maraming nag-o-offer ng donations na diretso sa akin, pero hindi namin tinanggap nang diretso kasi mayroong prohibition. Mayroong prohibition iyong mga government officials na tumanggap ng donations from private citizens,” she said.

“Kaya sinabi namin na kung may ganoong initiative, mas mabuting magpaalam ng Supreme Court, kung tatanggapin ng Supreme Court,” Robredo explained.

A group of women has started a campaign dubbed “Piso para sa laban ni Leni” to raise funds for her counter protesy against former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.

The Vice President still needs to pay P7.4 million by this week for the case.

The fundraising campaign for Robredo has managed to raise around P500,000, according to news reports.

Ngayon, ang pagkaintindi ko, nag-file sila ng motion sa Supreme Court na tanggapin iyong kanilang donation, pero naghihintay pa yata ng resolusyon.
