Reyes and Zarate on sedition raps against Robredo, others: Distraction lang

Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan) Secretary General Renato Reyes and Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Zarate have called out the government over the sedition complaint filed by the Philippine National Police-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group against Vice President Leni Robredo and 35 others, over the viral Bikoy videos that tagged President Rodrigo Duterte and his family in the drug trade.

Zarate and Reyes said the complaint filed against Robredo and others is a form of harassment and also meant to distract people from the real issues.

The false claim of ‘sedition’ is also a distraction from the real issues that should be discussed during the Sona — Duterte’s betrayal of the people, his puppetry and murderous policies,” Reyes said in a message to reporters.

In a way, the filing of the case wants to stun the opposition and prevent them from further exposing the abuses of the administration especially during the massive protest actions geared against the Sona on Monday,” Zarate explained.


Zarate also said that he believes the cases would not “stand credence in a fair court.”

It was just filed now to steal the thunder from the broadening movement against the excesses and tyrannical policies of the Duterte administration,” he added.
