House Speaker eyes impeachment case against Vice President Leni Robredo
The Vice President of the Philippines, Leni Robredo may face an impeachment complaint after House of Representatives Speaker Pantaleon “Bebot” Alvarez revealed that he’s studying the possible impeachable cases committed by Robredo.
In an interview with CNN Philippines, Alvarez said that he’s gathering evidences to prosecute the Vice President who recently criticized his closest ally, President Rodrigo Duterte.
He believes that the video message that the Vice President sent to the international community betrayed public trust.
Betraying the public trust is one of the impeachable offenses under the 1987 constitution.
Alvarez said that the action of the Vice President might alarmed the foreign investors and affect the economy of the Philippines.
“Sa buong buhay ko, ngayon lang ako nakakita ng isang mataas na opisyal ng gobyerno na walang pakundangan siraan ang ating bansa sa international community… Ano ang magiging epekto noon economically?” Alvarez told CNN Philippines.
The video message of President Leni Robredo that uploaded on social media sparked outrage and the netizens called for the Robredo’s resignation.
The house speaker also said that Robredo may possibly behind the impeachment case filed against President Rodrigo Duterte.
“Definitely yes. Sino pa ang magbe-benefit diyan” Alvarez said in a television interview.
Magdalo Representative Alejano denied the accusations that Robredo was involved in the impeachment case that he filed against President Rodrigo Duterte.
Alejano also admitted that Senator Antonio Trillanes IV was involved in planning the impeachment case.
