Ex-Senator Bongbong Marcos pays P36 million protest fee

Former Senator Bongbong Marcos, on Monday, paid P36 milion as cash deposit for his election protest against Vice President Leni Robredo.

This is the first installment and Marcos needs to pay P30-million more on or before July 14.

The Supreme Court, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal, required Marcos to pay a total of P66-million while Robredo has been ordered to pay P15-million for her counter-protest.

The amount is based on a PET rule that requires a protestant to make a cash deposit of P500 to the tribunal for each precinct covered by the poll protest.

But Robredo’s camp has stated they will only pay the amount once it is determined that the Marcos’ protest is sufficient in form and substance.

Sen. Bongbong Marcos said, “It’s fortunate I have kind-hearted friends who believe my protest is right and justified. They pooled their resources to send this open letter to the SC to start the process – set the preliminary conference and determine what really has happened.” — UNTV News & Rescue
