    VP Leni: Take evidence vs. narco politicians to court, not trial by publicity

    Robredo hits plan to release ‘narco list’ ahead of 2019 polls

    Vice President Leni Robredo on Wednesday said the administration should file appropriate charges against politicians allegedly involved in illegal drugs, as she opposes its plan to release the so-called “narco list” ahead of the 2019 midterm elections.

    While she shares the sentiment against electing narco politicians to public office, VP Leni underscored that trial by publicity has its dangers, especially after mishaps encountered by the administration over such lists over the past two and a half years.

    Robredo, a public interest lawyer by profession, said the government should take the politicians to court instead, if it is confident of its evidence against such officials.

    “Siyempre, ayaw natin na mag-elect tayo sa public office ng mga narco politicians, pero kasuhan na sila ngayon. Iyon pala, may ebidensya laban sa kanila, bakit ayaw pang kasuhan? Bakit ita-trial by publicity?” she told reporters at the sidelines of her visit to Nagcarlan, Laguna.

    “[K]ung mayroon namang ebidensya, bakit hindi kasuhan? Para warning din siya sa tao, pero hindi tayo nagiging unfair, kasi at least kapag kinasuhan sila, may pagkakataon silang depensahan iyong sarili. Ito kasi, kapag trial by publicity, wala kang pagkakataon depensahan iyong sarili mo,” she added.

    VP Leni has repeatedly raised concerns over the administration making its “narco list” public, given that there were names that were mistakenly included in it. She has been calling on agencies concerned to be prudent in such moves, noting the seeming lack of vetting, as well as possible motivations in including names in such list.
