Marcos Lawyer Dubbed VP Leni Robredo as "Free Rider" After PET's Decision to Release Soft Copies

Veteran lawyer and former Congressman Atty. Glenn Chong dubbed the controversial Vice President of the Philippines, VP Leni Robredo as "Free Rider" after the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) decided to gave VP Leni the soft copies (copy in the digital format) of the ballot images of the SD cards from Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental.


According to Atty. Chong, the camp of former senator Bongbong Marcos filed a motion for reconsideration at the PET resolution when request of Robredo was granted. BBM stated that the PET should not allow to give the soft copies because VP Leni did not request the decryption.

The soft copies is a result or just a project of decryption, so how come VP Leni could access the soft copies because she did not asked for decryption which will cost millions of pesos to the Vice President.

Atty. Chong also noted that the Vice President was just using the strategy of not asking for the decryption because it will cost them, but they'll ask for the result of decryption to avoid the big amount to pay to the COMELEC.



Here's the Complete Statement of Atty. Chong:

SUMASAKAY LANG NG LIBRE SI ALING LENI

Nagfile si BBM ng Motion for Reconsideration sa resolusyon ng PET makaraang pahintulutan nito ang hiling ng kampo ni Robredo na makakuha ng soft copies (kopya na nasa digital format) ng mga ballot images at mga reports na nasa loob ng SD cards mula sa Camarines Sur, Iloilo at Negros Oriental.

Ayon kay BBM, hindi dapat pahintulutan ng PET na mabigyan ng soft copies si Robredo dahil hindi naman siya humiling ng decryption. Ang soft copies ay resulta o by-product lamang ng decryption. Walang soft copies na lalabas kung hindi muna dadaan sa decryption proceedings ang mga SD cards. Dahil hindi humiling si Robredo ng decryption, hindi siya dapat makakuha ng soft copies na siyang resulta o by-product ng decryption. Ang ginawang ito ni Robredo ay labag sa procedural rules ng decryption ng mga SD cards.

Malinaw na ito ay stratehiya lamang ng kampo ni Robredo na hindi sila hihiling ng decryption pero hihiling sila sa resulta ng decryption upang maiwasan ang malaking halagang dapat bayaran sa Comelec. Sa madaling sabi, gustong sumakay ng libre si Aling Leni. May tawag dito – free rider!

Ayon sa patakaran ng Comelec hinggil sa decryption proceedings, dapat magbayad ang humiling nito ng kaukulang fees bawat presinto o SD card para sa paggamit ng kanilang election system sa decryption proceedings at dapat bayaran din ang per diems ng mga empleyadong itatalaga sa decryption proceedings sa bawat araw na sila ay nakatalaga dito. Nagbayad si BBM ng halos P3 milyon (P2,974,075.00). Pero si Robredo ay walang balak magbayad ng halos P3 milyon ng kaukulang fees.

Ayon kay BBM, hindi makatarungan at hindi patas (unfair, unjust and inequitable) na pagbigyan si Robredo sa ganitong paraan.

Maliban sa Ms. Useless, dapat ding bigyan ng Ms. Free Rider title si Aling Leni.
