1 min read

Veteran lawyer and prominent social media personality Atty. Ahmed Paglinawan believed that outgoing Vice President Leni Robredo is allegedly liable for graft, for using government resources to organize her would be NGO. 

Atty. Paglinawan made the remarks after fellow lawyer Adrian Pascual who allege that the Office of the Vice President has served as venue for meetings, the OVP social media pages for press release. 

There are reports also that the staff of the Office of the Vice President do the works related to the soon-to-be launchedd Angat Buhay NGO. 

According to Atty. Pascual since the Angat Buhay NGO will be launched on June 30th, it is unlikely the outgoing Vice President will hire outsiders to prepare for the launching of her NGO. 

Although all OVP staffs are not prohibited to do tasks related to her Angat Buhay NGO but doing NGO related stuff during office hours is indeed a violation and prohibited by law. 

The Vice President on the other hand, being the head of the NGO is technically has no definite office hours like Pres. Duterte because anytime she can assume the Presidency and assume the Office of the Vice President and therefore, she is expected to be working 24/7 for the government. 

Read the Complete Statement of Adrian Pascual:

Balita eh ginagamit ang office (OVP) for meetings? OVP socmed pages for PR? Staff to do the works? Totoo ba? 

Kung mag launch sila sa June 30th eh alangan naman outsider mga gagawa diba? Hindi naman bawal na staff niya din mga gagawa (prepare) pero hindi dapat sa oras ng OVP duty nila, diba? At si Leni as the head ng NGO anong oras niya ginagamit niya for that? 

Ang oras ng VP eh technically walang oras gaya ng sa presidente kasi anytime pwede kang magging presidente at mag assume ng office and therefore 24/7 dapat nakalaan sa gobyerno oras mo. 

Hindi naman tayo nagiging OA dito at nagiging inconciderate dito pero hello sila ang mga “disente” at maayos mag serbisyo sa gobyerno diba? Kaya need silang imeasure sa pinaka mataas na standards na pinapalabas nila na meron sila. 

Fair lang naman, diba?
