Diokno wants probe of fake lewd video of Aika Robredo
CABANATUAN CITY — Someone must be held responsible for the alleged fake lewd video of the eldest daughter of presidential candidate and Vice President Leni Robredo, a senatorial bet said here on Wednesday.
Robredo’s ally, Atty. Chel Diokno, said such things have no place in an electoral campaign.
“Dapat talaga may pananagutan ‘yan dahil hindi maganda at hindi nangyayari ‘yan sa isang kampanya,” Diokno said when asked on the sidelines of his talk to youths at the Robredo People’s Council headquarters here.
Robredo has directly accused the camp of her political nemesis, Ferdinand Marcos Jr., of spreading the alleged lewd video of Aika.
Diokno called on concerned government agencies to conduct a full investigation into the controversy.
“Hanapin kung ‘yung specific identities ng mga perpetrators. Ipakita natin na ‘yung batas ay talagang gagamitin para sa lahat, may pananagutan,” Diokno said.
The lawyer, meanwhile, expressed the belief that their camp could withstand the negative campaigning being waged against them in the run-up to the May 9 national and local elections.
“Kayang-kaya ‘yan!” he said.
From meeting the youth and volunteers, Diokno held a motorcade around the city, paid a courtesy call to Mayor Myca Elizabeth Vergara, and attended a dinner for a cause, organizers said.
