Robredo Defends De Lima On Sex Video

September 30, 2016

MANILA, Philippines – Vice President Leni Robredo opposed the planned showing of the alleged private video of Senator Leila De Lima at a House inquiry.

Robredo, as a lawyer, believed that playing the alleged sex video is “in violation of penal laws.”

She stressed that showing it is tantamount to a public shaming and it will inflict grave harm on the lady Senator’s dignity as a human person.

“As a former legislator, I fail to see how this will contribute to a substantial discussion of the issues being taken up,” she said in a statement released on Thursday.

Robredo advised members and leadership of the House “to keep the proceedings calm, sober, and objective as the investigation proceeds.”

“It is my earnest hope that all of us in public service, including my former colleagues in the House, do our utmost to maintain a rational and respectful level of discourse, with the same passion that we zealously pursue the truth,” the vice president said.

“Let us work together to establish a culture of respect and professionalism, both in government and in the larger sphere of public discussion. I have every faith that we will be up to this challenge,” she added.

The House of Representatives is currently investigating the alleged drug trade in the national penitentiary.

On Wednesday, Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, President Duterte’s party mate in the PDP-Laban, said he saw nothing wrong with showing the supposed video of De Lima engaged in an intimate act.

Alvarez said playing the video would help establish the illicit relationship between De Lima and her former driver Ronnie Dayan, who inmates alleged collected drug money for the Senator inside the New Bilibid Prison in Muntinlupa City.

Robredo and De Lima are both members of the Liberal Party (LP).

  1. Senator De Lima did not act like a lady befitting feminine attributes or lady like behaviour with mosesty, but like a witch from hell. She set all hell loose with her tirades against a popular sitting president of the republic. She deserves far more than what is planned for her.
