“Noong wala na sigurong mapiga sa akin, iyong asawa kong limang taon na nananahimik, iyon naman iyong nabiktima ngayon,” Robredo said on March 8, 2017 (Wednesday) during the “Women Defending Democracy” forum at Miriam College.

Robredo claims that false stories about her have circulated because she has been vocal about her criticisms against the Duterte administration.

“Ano ang kapalit ng pagiging vocal ko? Lahat ng kuwento naibigay na sa akin. Halimbawa isang kuwento, bago ko napangasawa ang asawa ko may iba na akong asawa na NPA (New People’s Army). Pagkatapos noong hindi iyon dumikit, mayroon na akong boyfriend. Pagkatapos nagadvance pa ng konti, buntis na. Noong ‘di lumaki ang tiyan ko nagpaabort na ako. Akala ko sa mga artista lang ang kuwento na iyon at di pa nakuntento,” she said.

Robredo explained that she kept mum on these issues because she knew she can defend herself. However, it was the last straw for the Vice President when anonymously owned We Are Collective blog and other critics attacked the memory of her late husband.

“Iyong asawa ko na ‘di na kayang depensahan ang sarili niya dahil hindi niyo ko napapatahimik, siya naman iyong bibiktimahin niyo,” she said.

She challenged the crowd by asking them, ““Ito ba iyong mundo na gusto nating kalakihan ng mga anak natin na hindi na natin alam ang totoo sa hindi? Siyempre hindi ang sagot natin. Kaya ang susunod na tanong, ano ang gagawin natin?”

  1. If you are open to criticizing, you must also accept criticisms. You criticized FEM too, who has long been dead, whats the difference? It's called karma, you reap what you saw. Do not do unto others what you do not want others to do unto you.
