    • 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...

      VP Robredo’s office gets highest audit rating anew

      The Office of the Vice President (OVP) once again received the highest audit rating from the Commission on Audit (COA). 

      In a report it transmitted to the OVP, the COA rendered an “unqualified opinion” on the fairness of the presentation of the OVP’s financial statement, this time for Fiscal Year 2019. The report, dated July 31, was signed by Supervising Auditor Edna P. Salaguban.

      An unqualified opinion is considered the best opinion that a government agency can receive from state auditors.

      This is the second year that the OVP has earned such ...

      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...

      Message of Vice President Leni Robredo on Ninoy Aquino Day

      Every year, on August 21, we remember Senator Ninoy Aquino.

      We remember his death: How he was murdered before he even set foot on the tarmac, coming home from exile to continue the struggle for our freedoms and dignities. We remember why he was killed: For speaking truth to power. For believing that we deserve better as a people. For hoping, and acting on that hope, and being brave enough to lay down his life for that hope.

      Most of all, we remember what his death meant for the entire nation. Sa halip na matakot, lalo tayong tumapang. S...
