    VP Leni takes ‘full responsibility,’ apologizes for Holocaust memorial photo

    ‘There is no excuse for it’ VP Leni takes ‘full responsibility,’ apologizes for Holocaust memorial photo

    Vice President Leni Robredo on Tuesday said she is taking “full responsibility” for the controversial photo of her and several public officials at the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe.

    In a chance interview at the Asian Forum on Enterprise for Society in Pasay City, VP Leni issued an apology “for offending the sensitivities of others.”

    “While there was no malice in it, I take full responsibility, kaya I would like to apologize for whatever offense to the sensitivities of the people it caused,” she said.

    The Vice President, chairperson of the Liberal Party, said she is taking “full responsibility” for the photo, taken when she and some of her partymates went on a study tour for poverty alleviation in Berlin, Germany last week.

    The Vice President and some members of the LP joined the said study tour, fully funded by the Friedrich Naumann Foundation (FNF)-Philippines, where they engaged in discussions on various aspects of governance, aimed at finding solutions geared towards poverty elimination and social justice.

    The FNF periodically hosts study visits for leaders in developing countries to give them the opportunity to dialogue with officials, and key figures from other countries such as Germany.
