Vice President Leni Robredo on Tuesday chided former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. over an alleged plot to steal the vice-presidency, saying it is not her family that has a history of stealing.
“Parang between the two of us, ewan ko, between the two us kung sino yung may mas, may history ng pagnanakaw, hindi yata ako,” Robredo told reporters.
(Between the two us, who has a history of stealing? Not me.)
Bongbong is the son of the late strongman Ferdinand Marcos, who is accused of amassing ill-gotten wealth from the Philippines during his time as president.
For 30 years, the Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG) was able to recover P170.7 billion or $3.7 billion, accounting for almost half of the 5 to 10 billion US dollars of alleged ill-gotten wealth.
The government is also still pursuing 248 cases against the Marcoses and their alleged cronies in various courts, with some appeals pending before the Supreme Court.
