AP/Bullit Marquez, File MANILA, Philippines — Vice President Leni Robredo on Monday called on Filipinos to respect constitutional institutions such as the Office of the Ombudsman and the Commission on Human Rights amid criticisms hurled at these agencies. Robredo, a human rights lawyer, noted that the 1987 Constitution ensures the perils of martial law would not happen again in the country through the creation of constitutional offices such as the CHR, Office of the Ombudsman, Civil Service Commission and Commission on Elections. “Kailangang galangin ang kasarinlang iginagawad ng Konstitusyon sa mga opisinang ito upang kanilang magampanan ang tungkuling panatilihing malinis at tapat ang gobyerno,” Robredo said in a statement.

Sama-sama tayong manindigan para sa ating Saligang Batas at mga demokratikong institusyon, kabilang ang isang walang kinikilingang Ombudsman,” she said. Duterte earlier threatened to form a commission that would investigate the supposed anomalies of the Office of the Ombudsman after the anti-graft agency announced that it was launching a fact-finding probe into the chief executive’s alleged clandestine wealth. He then dared Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales and Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno to resign with him.
