The Supreme Court or the PET denies the urgent motion to investigate the unethical outing of the PET revisors with VP Robredo’s representative. It said that the tribunal already looked into it and concluded its probe into the party. This statement from the PET confirms Vice President Robredo’s announcement that the PET had already investigated into the questioned swimming party. Bongbong Marcos is stunned why only Robredo knew about the said declaration. Not even the media knew about its verdict.

Bongbong Marcos is Stunned
Marcos questions the propriety of the presence of Robredo’s revisor Osmundo Abuyuan in the outing. He said in his plea that to fraternize with a revisor was prohibited by the PET or the election tribunal of the Supreme Court. It is prescribed in the Code of Conduct for Court Personnel and the Canon of Judicial Ethics. In a resolution dated July 10, 2018, the PET denies Marcos’ motion. It justifies its answer by saying that the investigation is already done. Erwin Tulfo reacts by saying why there’s no update to the public on this regard.

The PET’s Declaration
The PET, in the same resolution, also orders the Commission on Elections to file its own comment on Robredo’s motion. It urges for the use of the 25 percent ballot shading threshold in the recount. The Office of the Solicitor General, who represents the government in court cases, disagrees with the position of the COMELEC on the issue and sided with Marcos. The OSG urges the PET to junk Robredo’s appeal and upholds its resolution. SolGen Jose Calida said that valid votes are those with at least 50 percent shading.
Robredo’s Camp Updated with the PET
Robredo said that “A [CCTV] footage confirms that Mr. Miranda, Marcos’ revisor leaves the bag of snacks on the fourth floor of the building for the swimming event.” Although she fails to specify which building. “The revisors of protestant Marcos were also invited to the said outing. In fact, prior thereto, no less than one of the supervisors of protestant Marcos, Mr. Roderick Miranda, sent some snacks for the proposed outing,” she added. Robredo slams Marcos for urging the PET to investigate the outing. She stresses that a probe has already been conducted where “some of the personalities involved were already meted with penalties.”
The challenge to Show Proof to the Supreme Court
Lawyer Vic Rodriguez, a spokesperson of Marcos challenges Robredo’s camp to produce an “authentic” CCTV footage. “We challenge Mrs. Leni Robredo to go ahead and produce such footage provided it is authentic and not another product of her many lies,” he said. “We have shown pictures of how she has corrupted PET head revisors and pictures don’t lie. To date, all she has are alibis and more lies. She’s already caught and yet she is still making excuses,” he added.
