Leni Robredo, Maria Ressa, Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize!


OSLO, Norway (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo and Rappler CEO Maria Ressa were nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize for their war-related efforts.

Robredo was nominated for her courageous move to right a wrong in world history. She recently revised the period of World War II from 1939-1945 to 1939-1947. “War truths are important to peace efforts “ the nomination stated.

Ressa, on the other hand, was nominated for her reporting and business efforts in the erstwhile Philippine war zone, a claim that she has courageously espoused in her defense against criminal and other charges filed against her and as well as in her attacks against the government of President Rodrigo Duterte. “Navigating the truth in a war zone during peace time is a heroism to the first degree” the nomination said of Ressa.

The duo was nominated by Parliamentarian-wanna-be and aspiring United Nations magistrate Antonio Trillanes.
