BREAKING: Philippines Vice President, Others, Briefly Arrested By German Police

0A9826F0-54E3-4C96-8B39-CED952FE9F04.jpegBERLIN, Germany (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – Philippines’ Vice President Leni Robredo and other Filipinos were briefly arrested by German police after taking selfie photos at the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin.

Others arrested included Senator Kiko Pangilinan, former Budget Secretary Florencio Abad and Congressman Bolet Banal.

Apparently, it is against German law to pose and smile for the cameras in solemn and sacred places like the Memorial.

The group was released after pleading ignorance of the law.

’We just wanted to show the Filipino people that we were in Berlin for an official working visit,’ Robredo told The Adobo Chronicles.
