Statement of Atty. Vic Rodriguez, spokesman of former Senator Ferdinand "Bongbong" R. Marcos Jr.

19 February 2017

We are not surprised by the pronouncement of Leni Robredo’s counsel that they will appeal the recent PET decision which found former Senator Bongbong Marcos’ election protest to be sufficient in form and substance. Despite the Tribunal's ruling that this issue was already "beyond dispute”, Robredo’s legal team is still looking for ways to delay the proceedings. Their actuations on the protest have been consistent: they are afraid of the truth because it would reveal how much they tarnished and debased the true will of the Filipino people in the Vice-Presidential race.

If Robredo has nothing to hide, why resort to all these delaying tactics? It's not enough that her camp cheated their way to the Vice-Presidency. Now they want to cheat again by depriving Sen. Marcos of his day in Court. We want the truth to come out. That’s all.
