In the controversial article, the Robredo’s are accused of protecting jueteng lords and coddling drug lords allowing the proliferation of illegal activities in their own turf, Naga City. According to We Are Collective, the stories presented in the article were sourced from several trusted local sources. The group claimed that they did necessary research, undertook fact-checking and mined online sources to verify facts presented in the article.

After the article went viral, Robredo told reporters on Friday, March 3 that “Naga Leaks” was only meant to silence her.

“Yung paglabas ng kung anong leaks yan, ito ay attempt para i-silence tayo,” Robredo said.

“Ilang beses na itong ginawa dati. Hindi nagtagumpay. At kahit anong gawin, hindi ito magpapatahimik sa atin,” she added.

The former Camarines Sur solon stressed that she will continue to voice out her stand on issues even if it will counter the policies of the Duterte administration.

Earlier, Robredo criticized some policies and decisions made by President Rodrigo Duterte such as the spate of drug-related killings, the Marcos burial as well as the President’s preference for the reimposition of death penalty.
