Vice President Leni Robredo could face an impeachment complaint if there’s evidence to prove her alleged involvement in the production of “Ang Totoong Narco List” video series, Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission Commissioner Manuelito Luna

Luna made the statement as he called for an investigation into the claim of ex-convict Peter Joemel Advincula that the opposition was behind the video series as part of an ouster plot against President Rodrigo Duterte.

Advincula claimed he is the whistleblower “Bikoy” featured in the video series, which implicated President Rodrigo Duterte’s family members in the illegal drug trade.

In a press conference last week, Advincula claimed seeing Robredo in a meeting with opposition members about the alleged destabilization plot.

“Robredo may be impeached from office if it turns out upon investigation that she was involved in a plot to oust President Rodrigo Duterte,” Luna said.

The PACC official said involvement in an ouster plot can be considered as a “high crime,” which is an impeachable offense.

“If Advincula could substantiate his claim and his statement will be corroborated by another witness or material evidence, Robredo may face impeachment in no time,” Luna said.

Robredo has maintained her innocence regarding any destabilization plot.
