Former senator Bongbong Marcos’ lawyer Vic Rodriguez slammed Vice President Leni Robredo for accusing the Marcos camp of being behind the recent leaks from the ballot recount.
Robredo earlier said the leaks were part of a “huge PR stunt” by the Marcos camp.
Rodriguez lamented Robredo “attacked the media on World Press Freedom Day.”
“Not satisfied in casting aspersions meant to undermine the integrity of the Tribunal and of the ongoing manual recount, Robredo is at it again, this time attacking and discrediting members of the press and dragging Senator Marcos in her desperate attempt to dilute all negative news affecting her in the election protest,” he said.
“We find it ironic and lamentable that Mrs. Robredo attacked the media on World Press Freedom Day. If her votes have indeed been substantially reduced, it is not because of BBM but of evidence of her cheating that have come out,” Rodriguez added.
