Leni Robredo’s statement justifying the proposal of a US Senator banning the entry of PH government officials has been severely criticized and jeered on social media. You may refer the screen-captured photo below for reference.
Former DLSU professor Van Ybiernas and Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles led the bash party versus VP Leni Robredo on social media.
Let us begin with the DLSU professor Van Ybiernas who minces no words in calling Robredo “bobo” or dumb and went on to expound why he thinks so.
Ybiernas said Robredo simply don’t know the difference between the US senators proposal banning the entry of PH government officials and China banning the entry to Hong Kong of private citizens former DFA Sec Del Rosario and former Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales.
Ybiernas said the former is tantamount to US meddling of PH internal affairs while China refusing entry of del Rosario and Morales cannot be categorized as China meddling PH internal affairs.
You may read Van Ybiernas original FB post below.
Yung ban ng US ay tungkol sa domestic affairs ng Pilipinas. Samakatuwid, nakikialam yung mga Kano sa internal affairs natin.
Yung ban ng Tsina kay del Rosario at Carpio-Morales ay dahil sa mga komento nina del Rosario at Carpio-Morales sa Tsina. Samakatuwid sina del Rosario at Carpio Morales yung bumabanat sa Tsina, hindi yung Tsina ang nakikialam sa internal affairs natin.
Napakabobo ni Robredo sa totoo lang…
Ay sorry! Redundant pala ang “bobo” at “Robredo”
Not to be outdone, Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles joined Ybiernas in mocking VP Leni Robredo’s gaffe.
Angeles said not only Robredo failed to see the difference between acts of state and acts of individuals, she also failed to distinguish between former officials (acting in their personal capacities) with current officials acting in their official capacities.
In other words, del Rosario and Morales acted in their personal capacities when they filed a case vs China while the PH government officials the US senator want banned entry to the US were acting in their official function. In Tagalog, trabaho lang, walang personalan.
Angeles told Robredo in jest to think once in a while because it’s free.
Namaaaaaaaaan..bukod sa di makita ni Madame ang difference ng acts of state sa acts ng individuals* hindi rin siya nagdistinguish ng FORMER officials (acting in their personal capacities) with CURRENT OFFICIALS, acting in their OFFICIAL capacities.
Parang awa niyo na Madame! Isip din naman minsan. Libre naman yun!
Chona excluded private individuals who had filed suit against their state. The US Senate committee proposes to exclude officials who acted inntheir official capacities. This made it a direct interference with the country’s sovereignty.
