Atty. Romulo Macalintal’s lie that the camp of former Senator Bongbong Marcos sent food to their outing with the Supreme Court or PET revisors in Calamba, Laguna meets the fury of Erwin Tulfo on air. In the first place, they do not have the right to celebrate or unwind while leaving Filipinos in the dark with their gag order. Atty. Vic Rodriguez is right to say that the activity violates its own ruling.

[VIDEO]: MGA PATAY GUTOM NA REVISOR NG PET AT TAUHAN NI LENI ROBREDO NAGSI-LAMON AT NAG-OUTING SA LAGUNA
The camp of Bong Bong Marcos recently asks the Supreme Court that sits as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) to probe the recent swimming party. Some of the PET revisors or at least Head Revisors who determine the number of votes that can go to either party in the ongoing recount were there. The others were the chief tabulator, alternate head revisor, appraiser and at least six ballot box custodians and their chief. It just happens that a revisor of Vice President Leni Robredo was also present in the said event. There were a total of 24 people from the Supreme Court in the controversial excursion.
Marcos learned about the outing through the Facebook account of PET Head Revisor Maria Katrina (Che-Che) Rosales. She posted the photos of the “Pansol outing” on Sunday, June 24, 2018. The picture in her account shows the 24 PET personnel together with Osmundo “Ritchie” Abuyuan who is one of the revisors of Robredo. Marcos added that on July 2, Rosales, in an apparent attempt to “to rectify her mistake of publicly posting the incriminating photos of their ‘Pansol outing’,” deleted the photos from her Facebook account.
A Violation of the Judicial Ethics
It is prohibited to fraternize with the party revisor for the Protestee by the Tribunal because such act is prescribed by the Code of Conduct for Court Personnel. It is also stated in the Canon of Judicial Ethics,” Marcos said in his petition. The “Pansol outing” implies that Robredo’s camp already has the favor with these PET personnel. That can allow them to manipulate, influence and control the revision proceedings and maneuver the results to her advantage, said Atty. Vic Rodriguez, Marcos’ spokesperson.
Protestant Marcos now questions the ongoing judicial recount and revision proceedings. They can’t blame him to think that there can be compromises in the results. Given that the same is done by the very same PET personnel who appear to be in cahoots with the Robredo’s camp. The role of the Head Revisors is crucial in the ongoing revision of votes. This is because they are the ones who preside over their respective revision committees and control the conduct of the judicial recounting of ballots.
