[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos apologizes for skipping Comelec preliminary hearing



Attorney Vic Rodriguez is Positive

The two people who are with Marcos almost every day have been tested positive of Covid-19. His chief of staff, Attorney Vic Rodriguez and his security escort. This prompted the former senator to go in isolation that resulted to his absence in the disqualification case’s preliminary conference.


BBM’s Precon Absence

Bongbong Marcos failed to show up for the Commission on Elections’ pre-conference for the disqualification petitions filed against him. He had an order from the poll body to attend physically or virtually. But he experienced symptoms that included speaking difficulties due to throat inflammation.



Too Insensitive?

No one in their right mind who is a Covid-19 survivor experiencing its symptoms again would show his face on camera in an important proceeding. It would be very insensitive for the Comelec to force him to show up even just virtually. Considering the virus’ psychological implications. Besides, his case can proceed with the representation of his able attorneys. Besides, why insist on a BIR receipt issued many years ago when the agency already certified that the dues were paid?
