Trashed only the Motion

The PET trashed Robredo’s motion for reconsideration in a resolution that required her to pay the cash deposit. “The PET denied Robredo’s motion for reconsideration on the resolution to pay the cash deposit as ordered in its previous resolution dated March 21,” Supreme Court Spokesperson Theodore Te said. However, the court have given her another five days to comply.




No More Extension after Five Days

“The PET ordered Robredo to pay the cash deposit as stated in the resolution within a non-extendable period of five days from notice of the resolution,” he added. The Supreme Court that sits as the PET, ordered Robredo to pay ₱8 million within five days from 25 April 2017.



Robredo’s Camp Respects SC’s Ruling

Bernadette Sardillo, Robredo’s legal counsel said that they had yet to receive the PET order, but clarified that they respected the ruling and would comply. “Any payment of the cash deposit in our counter protest should not also be taken to mean that the election protest filed by former Sen. Marcos has any merit or legitimacy,” Sardillo stressed.









Merit on Marcos’ Electoral Protest

Why would Sardillo highlight the legitimacy of Marcos’ electoral protest when they pay the deposit? Does this mean that their payment acknowledges that Marcos’ claims of fraud are worth millions just to make a counter-protest? One thing is sure. Bongbong Marcos is confident to pay P36 M deposit out of the total P66 M just to prove Liberal Party’s fraudulent activities that benefit Robredo.
