De Lima on alleged raid try of Robredo condo, office: ‘I’m not privy to that’By Tetch Torres
MANILA, Philippines—Justice Secretary Leila De Lima said she has no information on the reported attempt of Interior and Local Government Undersecretary Rico Puno to enter the office and condominium unit of the late Local Government chief Jesse Robredo.
A television report alleged that Puno, together with several police officers, attempted to enter Robredo’s condominium unit and office hours purportedly to obtain crucial documents after the news broke about the plane crash.
“I am just heeding the request of Mrs. Robredo to secure documents in his condo,” De Lima told reporters.
If there was indeed an attempt on the part of Puno, De Lima said she has no idea what documents Puno was looking for.
“I’m not privy to that,” she said.
De Lima said that the issue was not within her jurisdiction.
“That matter is not under the jurisdiction of the DoJ and any probe into the reported attempted raid will not involve the department,” she said.
