Worried that her vice presidency will be returned to the rightful owner after ongoing recount shows Marcos is leading, Robredo’s camp is bringing the fight to a higher level.
On Friday, one of Robredo’s legal counsel filed a petition before the Supreme Court asking the former senator and two of his family members, his mother Imelda Marcos and sister Imee Marcos, to undergo DNA testing.
Robredo’s camp is seeking the possibility that Marcos is not the real son of former President Ferdinand Marcos Sr., and his wife Imelda Marcos.
The move is triggered by a Youtube video of Marcos explaining how the said urban legend about him started. You can watch the full video below.
“If Marcos is proven to be a fake son – an impostor, he has no right to be the vice president even if he wins the recount”, the petition said.
Although the highest court of the land find the petition extremely ridiculous, court secretary Atty. Letecia Velez said it is up to the Pet (Presidential Electoral Tribunal) if it will honor the request.
Marcos camp consider the petition a desperate move and has no merit.
“People know who is the real fake here and it will be uncovered very soon”, Marcos reacted later on Friday.
