MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Remember when now Senate President Tito Sotto was accused, no less than by the Kennedy Estate, of plagiarism for copying a speech of Robert Kennedy?
Well now, Vice President Leni Robredo is being sued for plagiarism by self-proclaimed investigative journalist Raïssa Robles.
Robles, who authored a book titled ‘Marcos Martial Law: Never Again,’ calls Robredo a copycat and a plagiarist.
Robredo, in a speech commemorating the imposition of Martial Law by then President Ferdinand E. Marcos, mimicked Robles’ copyrighted phrase, “Never Again.”
”She didn’t even have the common courtesy to ask my permission to use the phrase in her speech” Robles told The Adobo Chronicles.
