Tighter security at Robredo’s inauguration

Inquirer.net June 28,2016 - 10:17 AM



THE camp of Vice President-elect Leni Robredo will beef up the security at her inauguration on June 30 following alleged death threats against her.
Robredo’s spokesperson Georgina Hernandez on Monday confirmed that the new VP had been getting death threats, mostly coming from social media, since she won the elections last May 9.

Hernandez, however, declined to give details as to who were sending threats to Robredo.

“There are measures that we take with regard to that matter and those are for our security team to handle,” she added.

On June 19, Facebook user Edward Guillermo posted on an anti-President Aquino page a photo of a man brandishing a bolo as if he were beheading Robredo.

Guillermo posted the picture on the page “Cruelty of Noynoy “Abnoy” Aquino and his Government” with the caption “Ganito ang gagawin kay Aling Robredo… Tutol ba?”

Also on May 24, a certain Michael A. Casten posted a comment on Facebook with a photo of Robredo in the cross hairs of a gun.
