Vice President Leni Robredo’s lawyer Bernadette Sardillo, in a Rappler article, slammed Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos for ‘gatecrashing’ the ballot recount site for her brother’s electoral protest.
Sardillo said the Ilocos Norte politiko was not accredited to enter the area
“If it is following the rules of PET that are being placed in issue, maybe Ms Marcos should also explain why she blatantly violated the rules when she gatecrashed the revision area,” Sardillo said.
But former senator Bongbong Marcos’ lawyer George Garcia confirmed the defeated vice presidential candidate and his wife, Lousie Araneta Marcos, were part of the PET’s accreditation list but not the Ilocos Norte governor.
Garcia, however, said the lady governor was allowed by the PET to enter.
“The PET even apologized for the inadvertence when they allowed Gov Imee. The PET said it will not happen again,” Garcia said.
