Last Friday, President Duterte sided with Vice President Robredo and even fired Luna from the PACC.

“Ito naman, may tao ako na abugado sa PACC, commissioner Manuelito Luna. Gusto nya ipaimbestiga si Leni kung bakit magsolicit. Anak ng. Kaya nung narinig ko, sabi ko, ‘fire him.’ As of this moment, he is no longer connected with government,” Duterte said.

Duterte also warned officials at the National Investigation Bureau (NBI) that they would face the same fate if they went forward with the investigation.

Now former Presidential Anti-Corruption Commissioner Manuelito Luna said earlier that NBI would investigate Robredo’s fund drive and relief operations for COVID-19 frontliners believing that it was made to “compete with” or “calculated to sabotage” the efforts of the Duterte administration.

VP Robredo, along with her associates, was able to raise over P40 million for food and medical supplies for frontliners in over 100 hospitals and local government units nationwide.



VP Robredo responded to Luna’s comments by brushing it off and said she has a lot of work to do.
