MANILA, Philippines – A solon and ally of the administration said impeachment raps against Vice President Leni Robredo and Supreme Court Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno will possibly be filed in August when Congress meets for its second regular session.

“Sa tingin ko mga Agosto ‘yan. Mga Agosto siguro ‘yan, mas klaro kung meron ba talagang mga moves sa matter na ‘yan. Pero hindi ko pa talaga ma-confirm yan,” Abante quoted Puwersa ng Bayaning Atleta Rep. Jericho Nograles as saying.

[I think it will be in August. It will be filed maybe in August, but it be will clearer if there will be moves for that matter. But I cannot really confirm it.]

With regards to Robredo, Nograles said she may possibly face multiple complaints which already have endorsers.

“Maaaring merong pangatlo o pang-apat o pang lima na maipa-file at hindi ko alam kung sinong nagpa-plano nito. Pero kung merong maipa-file ‘yan, meron nang endorser ‘yan,” he said.

[It’s possible there may be three, four or five complaints that will be filed but I don’t know who is planning this. If it will be filed, there will be endorsers.]

The solon begged off from divulging more details, however; explaining that he would rather for the actual complaints to be filed before making any conclusions.

“Maaari. ‘Yung mga naririnig naman natin, siyempre mahirap ma-confirm until makita mo ang papeles. Pero kung tinatanong mo ako, kung meron akong narinig na mga tsismis, aba meron,” he said.

[It’s possible. Whatever we hear, it would be of course hard to confirm until we actually see the papers. But if you ask me if I’ve heard rumors, there are.]
