Bayan Muna party-list Rep. Teddy Casino said he sends his sincere condolences to the family and friends of Secretary Robredo.
“Secretary Jesse was an outstanding local chief executive and a very competent Department Secretary. He was one of the few Cabinet members who we truly respected and appreciated. We were witness to his compassion for the informal settlers whose violent demolitions we both tried to stop. His death is a big loss to the cause of good governance,” he said.
Funny that, considering some time ago, Casiño's politburo was reportedly calling for Robredo's head to be served on a platter...
Umapela ngayon si DILG Sec. Jesse Robredo sa mga kritiko na isantabi muna ang panawagang magbitiw ito sa puwesto habang hindi pa natatapos ang imbestigasyon ng Incident Investigation and Review Committee (IIRC).
Ilan sa mga nananawagan para sa pagbibitiw ni Robredo ay ang Bayan Muna partylist at ilang kongresistang kababayan pa ng kalihim sa Bicol.
DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo appealed to critics to defer their call for him to resign his position until the Incident Investigation and Review Committee (IIRC) completes its investigation.
A number of House Representatives have been calling for Robredo's resignation including Bayan Muna partylist along with a number of congressmen who also hail from Robredo's hometown in Bicol.
