QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – A day after the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) ordered Leni Robredo to pay the counter-protest poll fee of P8 Million, the Vice President put the Boracay Mansion up for sale.
Robredo said that proceeds of the sale will go towards fulfilling the required cash deposit in connection with former Senator Bongbong Marcos’ case challenging the results of the last vice presidential elections.
The PET directed Robredo to pay the cash deposit as stated in the resolution within non-extendable period of five days from notice of the resolution.
Robredo told The Adobo Chronicles that because she is from the laylayan and that she makes a living out of selling lugaw, she does not have that kind of cash 💰 to fulfill the PET’s order. “Selling the Boracay Mansion is the only way I can raise that kind of money. FilAm millionaire Loida Nicolas-Lewis has not yet responded to my request for a personal loan.”
The Boracay Mansion is a 7,000-square-meter property located at No. 100, 11th Street, New Manila, Quezon City which now serves as the office of the Vice President.
It appears that no one in Robredo’s staff — not even her top spokesperson Georgina Hernandez — told her that the Vice President does not own the mansion.
In that case, Robredo may just need to follow up her request with Nicolas-Lewis.
