    VP Leni Robredo’s Statement on the Proposed Showing of the Alleged Sex Video

    29 September 2016

    The ongoing inquiry by the House of Representatives into the alleged drug trade in the national penitentiary has become a matter of great interest to the public, creating strong sentiments and generating passionate debate among our fellow Filipinos.

    And precisely because of this, I believe it is critical that the members and leadership of the House – many of whom are my former colleagues from the previous Congress – keep the proceedings calm, sober, and objective as the investigation proceeds.

    I am concerned by the news that, as part of this investigation, there is a plan to show a supposed video of an incumbent Senator engaged in an intimate act.

    As a former legislator, I fail to see how this will contribute to a substantial discussion of the issues being taken up.

    As a lawyer, I believe that this act may be in violation of penal laws. And as a long-time advocate for human and women’s rights, I am profoundly disturbed by a proposal that amounts to the public shaming of a woman and the infliction of grave harm on her dignity as a human person.

    It is my earnest hope that all of us in public service, including my former colleagues in the House, do our utmost to maintain a rational and respectful level of discourse, with the same passion that we zealously pursue the truth.

    Let us work together to establish a culture of respect and professionalism, both in government and in the larger sphere of public discussion.

    I have every faith that we will be up to this challenge.
