A group of Filipino lawyers are planning to file an impeachment case against Vice President Leni Robredo on her alleged economic sabotage and betrayal of public trust.

According to Interior and Local Government Assistant Secretary Epimaco Dansing, the volunteer lawyers, who refused to reveal their identities for now, have already met.

One of the possible complaints against Robredo is her video message on the 60th United Nations Commission on Narcotics to discredit the Duterte administration on its anti-illegal campaign.

Densing said that there is a provision of economic sabotage because the country’s relation with the other nations was placed in jeopardy because of Robredo’s statement.

Densing added that the said group of lawyers continue to gather evidence that will strengthen their impeachment case against the Vice President.
