Lawyer vs lawyer: Atty. Angeles to Leni: “Mawalang galang po, pero nabaligtad nyo yata”

ATTORNEY VS. ATTORNEY Atty. Angeles to Leni: “Baliktad na yata ang isip mo!”
Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles posted a fiery and scorching opinion in her Facebook account regarding Vice President Leni Robredos’s statement that no one can stop someone who wishes to file a complaint to the International Criminal Court against Pres. Rodrigo R. Duterte.

On an interview to the VP, Robredo stated that no one can hinder those who wanted to charge the president to the ICC. She added that “Tingin ko hindi natin mahihinto kahit sino na gusto mag-avail ng mga prosesong available. Pero siyempre sa atin, bilang bansa, mas gusto natin na ni-reresolve natin iyong mga problema on our own.” This statement of the Robredo is in relation with Alejano considering to file impeachment complaints against the President before the ICC after his impeachment complaint was dismissed by the House Committee of Justice due to lack of substance. 

Atty. Angeles opposed Robredo’s statement that “Isa naman tayong sovereign na bansa kaya mahalaga din na ipakita ng ating institusyon na hindi niya isinasantabi iyong mga reklamo ng sambayanan para hindi kinakailangan ng maghahanap ng recourse sa iba”.  Angeles said that it is not the Republic of the Philippines’ duty to prove before the International Criminal Court that the institutions work to resolve emerging problems and concerns on the services and operations of the government. 

The fierce lady Atty. Angeles pointed out that it is Alejano or whoever has the intention to file a case against the president have the burden to prove that the state has failed and its institutions aren’t functioning to the extent that there is no remedy nor alternative course of actions available and they have to lobby it to the ICC. In her facebook post, she reiterated that it is not the Philippine government’s task to prove its effectiveness to the ICC.

To close her public post, she advised VP Robredo to take it slow in giving advice. She even added there are many (experts) to consult. “Wag na lang kayo”, she ended.

Atty. Angeles is one of the bold critics of Robredo.
