‘Fire him’: Duterte on PACC commissioner suggesting NBI probe on Robredo

News

Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) Commissioner Manuelito Luna has earned the ire of President Rodrigo Duterte for suggesting to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to investigate Vice President Leni Robredo.

“Alam mo meron talagang taong gago. Si Leni was calling the private sector na magtulong, naghingi siya ng tulong. Tama ‘yan,” President Duterte said.

“Ngayon naman may tao ako na abugado sa PACC, commissioner, Manuelito Luna – gusto niya na ipa-imbestiga si Leni kung bakit nag-solicit. Anak ng – kaya nung narinig ko sabi ko ‘fire him.’ As of this moment, he is no longer connected to government,” Duterte said.

Luna said on April 2 that “the National Bureau of Investigation should investigate Vice-President Leni Robredo for illegal solicitations, actions that compete with, or calculated to undermine, national government efforts in this time of public health emergency or national calamities, such as OVP’s free shuttle service and dormitories for health workers, and PPEs for health workers.”
