OFFICIAL STATEMENT OF ATTY. VICTOR D. RODRIGUEZ (in isolation as Covid-19 positive) in response to disinformation on BBM’s failure to attend Comelec hearing

Press Releases
9 January 2022

On the morning of January 6, 2022, BBM proceeded with his scheduled morning interview despite feeling unwell.

After the interview, his physician arrived and determined that he had a fever and throat swelling. BBM was instructed to take a midday rest.

Mid-afternoon, however, he went on with another radio interview. We believe it was that afternoon interview which exacerbated his condition.

On the morning of January 7, BBM was obliged to go in isolation because his condition worsened. It was at that time that the Comelec wanted him to appear even through a video conference.

A judgment call was made to let BBM continue with his needed rest, since he was in bed after taking his medicines.
