Duterte to fire Vice President if she shares state secrets with other countries

By ROGER M. BALANZA

Selling to other countries or foreign groups classified information and confidential matters on the Philippine drug situation is a big no-no that Vice President Leni Robredo must avoid if she does not want to be kicked out as co-chair of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD).

If Robredo does this, she would be putting at risk the security of the country, and President Rodrigo Duterte said he will not have second thoughts about kicking her out of ICAD, the lead agency in the government’s war against illegal drugs.

Duterte appointed Robredo to ICAD and gave her at six months to be part of the war against illegal drugs after she assailed  the government’s fight against illegal drugs as a failure.

The President said Robredo knows that  there are limits to information-sharing  with other states or international groups.

“There’s a limit to that. I know that she’s a lawyer and she has other advisers… There are certain matters that should be kept with the government,” Duterte said.

“Classified matters cannot be shared. Once (she does) that, she’s out, I would fire her,” Duterte said on Saturday, November 16.

A day before, Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Director General Aaron Aquino said he is not comfortable with giving Robredo the PDEA’s list of High Value Targets (HVT) in the government’s campaign against illegal drugs.
Robredo, a vocal critic of the government’s war on drugs, has requested a copy of the list as co-chairman of ICAD.
