Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar does not believe that Vice President Leni Robredo is involved in an email group allegedly planning to oust the President.
“I’m not saying it’s the vice president, I don’t even think it’s the vice president herself, baka yung mga tao niya?” Andanar said in a televised interview on ANC on Tuesday morning.
However, he said that the Department of Information and Communications Technology is currently investigating to see if the group is genuine.
“Sa Yahoo! Groups kasi, your name can be included even without your permission,” Andanar explained. “You cannot put everyone, all the names here, and say they’re involved, and they’re all in sundry, you cannot do that,” he added.
“Kailangan niyang disipilanhin yung mga tao niya kung sila nga itong mga andito,” Andanar said.
Vice President Leni Robredo denied the allegation of her being involved in any plots to oust the President.
“Hindi ko alam kung ano ang participation ko, na-memention daw ang pangalan ko pero hindi ako kabahagi nung grupong iyon. Mayroon din daw e-mails na nag-cicirculate, wala. Hindi rin ako kabahagi doon,” she said in an interview with media in Marinduque.
