Meet the abogados who defended Robredo’s VP win before the Supreme Court
This group of lawyers deserve a pat on the back for a job well done.
Vice President Leni Robredo is officially the rightful winner of the 2016 elections, the Supreme Court sitting as Presidential Electoral Tribunal affirmed on Tuesday, February 16.
The case was nearly five years long, and the politiko-abogado could not have made it through without the expert help of her counsels. She gave them a very special shoutout during her press briefing after the landmark decision.
Leading the group is Atty. Romy Macalintal, who also tried to run as senator in 2019. Joining him are Atty. Beng Sardillo, Atty. Emil Marañon, Atty. Ace Bautista, Atty. Reagan De Guzman, and Atty. Jaz Banal.
“Maraming salamat sa Presidential Electoral Tribunal for their fairness and resolve. Kasama ko ngayon sa harap iyong ating mga lawyers kasi siguro, kayong mga nakakaalam ng pinagdaanan natin, alam iyong sakripisyo nila. Hindi naging madali iyong daan na tinahak natin pero knowing that they were with us, iyon talaga iyong nagpalakas ng loob natin na tahakin iyong pang-araw-araw,” Robredo added.
