Current Philippine “Vice President” Leni Robredo is quite often in the news criticising President Rodrigo Duterte. People who support Duterte can’t get past the fact that all she does is criticise him.
“Robredo questions this and that”.
“Robredo recommends this and that”.
“Robredo criticises govt policy on this and that”.
Robredo is telling everyone she can do a better job than the President. Her lack of delicadeza is always on display. She has no sense of propriety!
Have you ever heard of any Vice President or second-in-command who routinely questions the decisions of the President or leader in public? It only happens in the Philippines and is only because Leni Robredo is too dense to realise she shouldn’t be undermining the President. What Leni is doing is called sedition.
Article 142 of the Revised Penal Code states…
Inciting to Sedition. – The penalty of prision correctional in its maximum period and a fine not exceeding 2,000 pesos shall be imposed upon any person who, without taking any direct part in the crime of sedition, should incite others to the accomplishment of any of the acts which constitute sedition, by means of speeches, proclamations, writings, emblems, cartoons, banners, or other representations tending to the same end, or upon any person or persons who shall utter seditious words or speeches, write, publish, or circulate scurrilous libels against the Republic of the Philippines…
Just recall how Robredo, in a video addressed to the UN in 2017 made so many unfair and unfounded remarks about the Philippines government — her own government that she is a part of!
Even without the testimony of “Bikoy” or any other so-called whistleblower, clearly there are grounds to accuse Robredo of seditious acts.
In life, things are not always what they seem.
