Pwedeng pag-usapan yan! Koko Nograles open to endorsing impeachment raps vs. Robredo

PBA party-list Rep. Jericho Nograles has expressed openness to endorsing an impeachment complaint against Vice President Leni Robredo, months after turning down a similar request from a group of administration supporters.

In an interview over dzBB radio Sunday (July 16), Nograles said his endorsement will depend on the contents of the complaint that will be filed against Robredo.

“Kung merong dahilan then bakit hindi. If any official has done a culpable violation of the constitution na alam talaga nating maling mali, eh trabaho natin mag endorse nyan,” he said.

Last May, Nograles was tagged as the lawmaker who will endorse the impeachment complaint prepared by the group of lawyers Bruce River and Trixie Cruz Angeles against Robredo.

Nograles, however, claimed he wasn’t informed beforehand by Rivera and Angeles’ group that they plan to make him the complaint’s endorser.

There is currently no impeachment case filed against the Vice President although lawyer Oliver Lozano has expressed an intent to lodge one should he find an endorser in Congress.

Nograles said as much as four impeachment complaints may be filed against Robredo in the coming months.

While mum about the details about the forthcoming complaints, the lawmaker said he might know who’s behind them.
