OVP Defends Leni Robredo’s Postponement Of Drug War Report

QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – The much-hyped, “explosive” report to the nation by Vice President Leni Robredo on her findings regarding Duterte’s war on drugs didn’t happen as schedued today.

It will be recalled that Robredo, who was “drug czar” for 19 days before being fired, said she would make the revelation after the conclusion of the Philippines-hosted 2019 South East Asian Games.

Robredo convened a press conference but didn’t reveal the report, citing the fact that she was deferring the report because of the 6.9 earthquake in Mindanao. Which pissed many news media reporters.

But the Office of the Vice President defended the non-release of Robredo’s report today,  saying that when  Robredo said she would release the expose AFTER the SEA Games, it simply meant the period between the conclusion of the 30th SEA Games in the Philippines and the opening of the 31st SEA Games to be hosted by Vietnam in 2021.

Makes sense.
