Nagpagamit o nanggagamit? Robredo laughs at ‘sloppy’ sedition raps based on Bikoy ‘lies’
Vice President Leni Robredo laughed off the sedition allegations filed against her and key opposition figures, who are once again being tagged in a supposed destabilization complaint against the President.
Robredo broke her silence on the matter on Sunday (July 21, 2019), days after the Philippine National Police’s Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG) filed a sedition complaint against her and 35 other individuals, including those who have been vocal against the policies of the administration.
“Ito, mapapakamot ka talaga sa ulo, eh,” she said on her weekly radio show. “Hindi mo alam kung matatawa ka o matatakot para sa bansa.”
The Vice President scored the “sloppiness” shown by authorities, given the lack of credibility of its witness, Peter Joemel Advincula, the man who claims to be “Bikoy”.
“Sabi ko nga, sana hindi ito reflective ng buong institusyon, kasi talaga namang at first glance, alam mo na kaagad na sinungaling. Dalawang bagay lang: either nagamit sila o sila iyong nanggamit,” she said on her weekly radio show on RMN-DXZL 558. “Kapag sinabi kong either nagamit sila, kasi iyong mga statements madali namang ma-verify. Hindi ba sila nag-verify, para hindi naman sila napapahiya? O iyong sa kabilang banda, baka naman sila iyong nanggamit. Gusto lang nilang hanapan ako ng problema, ang ginamit naman nila itong sinungaling na witness.”
“Ang trabaho nila, iyong sloppiness ng trabaho, sana hindi ito reflective ng buong kapulisan, kasi kung oo, kawawa naman tayo,” she added.
After he retracted his claims that President Rodrigo Duterte and his family were involved in the drug trade, Advincula then tagged Robredo and other personalities critical of the administration as those behind the “Ang Totoong Narcolist” video series. The man, however, was not able to produce any evidence on this matter.
Robredo had already denied his allegations, as she had never met or communicated with Advincula, who is represented by defeated senatorial candidate Larry Gadon.
