Ngayong araw lang ay sinisante o sinibak na ni Panglong Rodrigo Roa Duterte si Vice President Leni Robredo bilang co-chair ng Inter-Agency Committee Against Illegal-Drug (ICAD).
Naglabas na rin ang tagapagsalita ng Pangulong Duterte na si Secretary Salvador Panelo ng rason kung bakit ipinag-utos ni Pangulong Duterte ang pagsibak kay Robredo.
Ayon kay Panelo, isa daw sa dahilan ay ang pakikipag-usap ni RObredo sa United Nations at United States embassy officials, imbes na kausapin ang mga nabiktima ng adik.
“There’s a limit to that. I know that she’s a lawyer and she has other advisers… There are certain matters that should be kept with the government, that classified matters cannot be shared. Once [she does] that, she’s out, I would fire her. Because you jeopardized the security of the state,” sabi ni Secretary Panelo.
Ginamit din daw ni Robredo ang pagkakataon para atakehin ang mga ginawa ng Administrasyon laban sa droga. Sinayang daw ni Robredo ang pagkakataon.
“The President’s designation of VP Robredo was not like any offer to perform a certain task. It was an offer to make the campaign against illegal drugs better – a chance where both this Administration and the political opposition could have unified in fighting the social ill that has destroyed the lives of many and imperilled thousands others, in addition to creating a multitude of dysfunctional families and threatening the present and the next generation to useless existence. Unfortunately, she wasted such opportunity and used the same as a platform to attack the methods undertaken by this Administration. Such tack was even motivated by hubris to prove their past arguments against the anti-illegal drug operations were correct. It at once crumbled as her request for police data validated the falsity of their arguments that the extra-judicial killings are state-sponsored,” dagdag pa ni Spokesperson Panelo.
