VP Leni Robredo Deplores Fake E-mail Spreading Anti-Duterte Messages
The Vice President Leni Robredo denied the fake e-mail involving her name to spread messages criticizing President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.
The Office of the Vice President (OVP) on Monday, clarified the allegations that there was an e-mail that spread anti-Duterte messages. They said it was not her sending e-mails purportedly congratulating those who “continue to destroy the image of President Duterte” on social media.
On her official Facebook page, VP Leni Robredo posted an advisory stating that the e-mail involving her name is fake. A screenshot of the e-mail that Robredo’s office got showed it came from this address: [email protected].
“I would like to congratulate you for what you are doing. Please continue to destroy the image of President Duterte since this will be crucial in retaking the presidential seat for the 2022 elections. I want to be seated there!” it read.
“Continue to propagate your Facebook posts and instill them into the minds of young Filipinos in order for them to hate the current administration. Keep it up!” the email said.
The vice president then warned the public against the spread of the fake e-mails claiming to come from her office. She reminds the public to be aware of what they are reading online.
“Muli, pinapaalalahanan natin ang ating mga kababayan na maging mas mapanuri sa mga nababasa online at huwag basta maniwala sa mga haka-haka at kasinungalingan,” she said.
Robredo remained open to the idea of running as an opposition’s standard-bearer in the May 2022 election. However, she said his current focus is to address the pandemic.
Her supporters are forcing her to run for the presidency next year, possibly against the president’s daughter Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio or Senator Bong Go.
“Sa ngayon, nakatutok lamang ang Bise Presidente sa iba’t ibang inisyatibo sa ilalim ng COVID-19 operations ng OVP,” Robredo’s office said.
