Please shut up: SC tells Robredo, Bongbong to stop talking about poll protest
Both camps of Vice President Leni Robredo and former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. have been warned from making comments over the electoral protest being handled by the Supreme Court (SC), sitting as Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), reminded SC Spokesman Brian Hosaka.
Hosaka made the reminder as both camps grew more anxious as the PET has again deferred from making a ruling over the results of the recount of the three pilot provinces in the electoral protest.
“Gusto ko po ulit ipa alala sa mga parties at sa kanilang mga abugado na galangin po sana nila ang utos ng korte na wag mag kumento o magsalita sa media tungkol sa kaso ayon sa ‘sub judice rule’,” he declared.
With this, he told the parties from not disregard any rumors circulating about the results of the recount and how the SC will rule on it.
“Yung mga justices lang po ang may alam nito dahil confidential po yan,” Hosaka pointed out.
“Itong kaso po sa PET ay maingat pang pinag-aaralan ng ating mga justices,” he assured.
He pointed out the electoral protest concerns the vice presidency, the second highest position in the country.
“Kaya po siguro dapat lamang ay pag-aralan ng mabuti at maingat ang ating mga justices, ang bawat issue, at ebidensiya ng kaso,” he said.
