MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The electoral protest filed by Bongbong Marcos against Leni Robredo in connection with the 2016 Vice Presidential elections has remained in limbo for several years now.
Today, the Supreme Court of the Philippines, acting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) has finally declared Robredo the whiner in the contest.
Despite the matter considered sub judice, where parties in a case pending in court are prohibited from publicly discussing related issues, the Robredo camp has been vocal in criticizing Marcos for his persistent attempts to assert his legal rights.
As a matter of fact, the Robredo camp just this week called Marcos a “spoiled brat” for once again pushing a Supreme Court (SC) justice to inhibit from the electoral protest he filed against Robredo.
In an en banc resolution, the PET admonished Robredo to stop whining and let the case proceed accordingly.
BAGUIO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Baguio Bureau) – In Baguio City, the Philippines’ Summer Capital, front liners, including police officers, are required to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) at all times.
The city is known for the discipline of its citizens particularly in following mandated health protocols aimed at curbing the further spread of the coronavirus.
As seen in the photo, taken along the city’s main thoroughfare, Session Road which is closed to vehicular traffic on Sundays, police officers wear their PPEs with pride: face mask, face shield, hand gloves and g-string.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – As part of its no-nonsense campaign to rid Metro Manila’s roads and highways from traffic obstruction, agents of the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) yesterday arrested dozens of Filipino commuters for blocking a major thoroughfare (see photo).
Those arrested were released later after they argued with police that they weren’t blocking the road. They were blocking the sun.
