    • Message of Vice President Leni Robredo on the Commemoration of the Liberation of Marawi City

      Posted in Statements on Oct 18, 2020

      Message of Vice President Leni Robredo on the Commemoration of the Liberation of Marawi City

      Three years ago, the government declared the “liberation” of Marawi City after a months-long siege. We remember the innocents who lost their lives in this conflict. We honor our soldiers— those who exhibited courage and determination during those dark, dangerous months, especially those who fell, making the ultimate sacrifice for peace.

      To this day, thousands of Marawi's residents remain displaced, its buildings remain in ruins, and the city has yet to reclaim any semblance of normalcy, much less its f...

    • Statement of VP Leni Robredo on the Passing of Baby River Nasino

       Statement of VP Leni Robredo on the Passing of Baby River Nasino

      Last Friday, Oct. 9, we learned of the passing of Baby River, the three-month-old child of detained community organizer Reina Mae Nasino.

      Baby River was separated from her mother just one month after birth, with the court denying multiple pleas for Reina Mae to be with her baby who was then in critical condition.

      With Baby River’s passing, we support the calls for the temporary release of Reina Mae so that she can be with her family and loved ones during this difficult time. This is the least we could do for a mother who lost he...

    • MENSAHE NI VICE PRESIDENT LENI ROBREDO SA ANIBERSARYO NG DEKLARASYON NG MARTIAL LAW

      MENSAHE NI VICE PRESIDENT LENI ROBREDO SA ANIBERSARYO NG DEKLARASYON NG MARTIAL LAW

      Ngayong araw, ginugunita natin bilang nagkakaisang bansa ang proklamasyon ng Martial Law noong 1972— isang proklamasyong naging simula ng madilim na kabanata ng ating kasaysayan. Napapanahon ang pag-alala na ito, lalo na ngayong dumadaan muli ang ating bansa sa isang mabigat na pagsubok.

      In a time when divisiveness is the norm and the gaps in society continue to widen, it is essential that we strive to find more spaces of commonality. We do this not only by looking forward to a shared horizon, where our shared ...

    • Pahayag ng Pangalawang Pangulo sa Pagbibigay ni Pangulong Duterte ng Absolute Pardon kay US Marine Joseph Scott Pemberton

      Posted in Statements on Sep 08, 2020

       Pahayag ng Pangalawang Pangulo sa Pagbibigay ni Pangulong Duterte ng Absolute Pardon kay US Marine Joseph Scott Pemberton

      Noong October 11, 2014, pinaslang si Jennifer Laude sa Olongapo. Kahapon, binigyan ng absolute pardon ng Pangulo ang pumaslang sa kanya na si Joseph Scott Pemberton.

      Ang tanong nga natin: Patas at makatarungan ba ang naging desisyong ito? Libo-libo ang nakakulong pa rin dahil walang pambayad sa abugado. Hindi malitis-litis ang kanilang mga kaso. May mga pamilya silang nagugutom, nagkakasakit, at naghihirap. Pemberton had lawyers, special detention facilities, a quick, publ...

      Statement of Vice President Leni Robredo on Sulu bombing that killed 7 soldiers and injured 76 others

      Reports have come in regarding two blasts that rocked Jolo, Sulu, earlier today. As of the latest count, 13 are dead, seven of whom were members of our Armed Forces. Many more were injured.

      I grieve with the families of the lost and extend my sympathies to the injured. This attack is even more horrific in the context of the pandemic, when the imperative is to pull together to address the damage already wrought on our health, economy, and way of life. To kill in such a manner, in these times, r...
