Calida hits Robredo’s ‘lies,’ says she is ‘confused’
ADVERTISEMENTREAD: Robredo: OSG seems to be lawyering for the Marcoses“Her statements are outright lies. Her statements demean and belittle the work the OSG and its lawyers have been doing for decades to recover ill-gotten wealth,” said Calida. Furthermore, the proposed settlement required that the Philippine government grant immunity to Vilma Bautista and move to dismiss the cases against her in the Sandiganbayan. “The government cannot grant immunity to Vilma Bautista. The authority of the PCGG to grant such immunity is limited only to a witness who can provide material and relevant information or testify against a defendant in an ill-gotten wealth case,” Calida said.
