MANILA — The Supreme Court, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), denied the request of Vice President Leni Robredo to defer the payment of the cash deposit for her counter-protest.
In a resolution, the tribunal gave Robredo five days to pay the P8,000,000 initial deposit out of the P15-million required for the retrieval of the ballots she contested.
The tribunal, meanwhile, deferred acting on the motion of former Senator Bongbong Marcos to dismiss Robredo’s counter-protest for failure to pay the deposit.
PET will decide on the matter after Robredo complies with their directive.
Robredo’s camp said they respect the decision and they are willing to pay the required protest fee. — UNTV News & Rescue
