The privileges of the Vice President that goes beyond the law




Vice President Leni Robredo was bombarded with judgment and claims that she was given special treatment when she rode a bus going to Naga. Robredo was accused of being picked up in a prohibited area and Robredo boarded this public utility bus with her dog which was a violation of the law. 

Based on the Republic Act 8485 otherwise known as The Animal Welfare Act, it states that owners shall be held responsible for transporting their pets by providing clean sanitary facility and sufficient food for the entire trip. But it also states that “No public utility shall transport any such animals without a written permit from the Director of the Bureau of Animal Industry or his/her authorized representative.” This may thus make Robredo’s actions a violation of the RA 8485.

De La Salle University professor Antonio Contreras, one of the many furious netizens on Facebook wrote that,

“First she gets picked up by the bus at a place where it is prohibited…Now she gets to bring her pet dog to board a bus where it is prohibited.”

Another netizen, Andre Olivar, on the other hand dealt with this issue with humor. Olivar stated,

“…Next time mag dadala ako ng KALABAW, kambing at manok sa bus para maibyahe ko rin mga alaga ko…”

With all these negative reactions on Facebook, the netizens collectively question Robredo this “Are you above the law?”

You can see the full Facebook post of Antonio Contreras below.

“LENI ROBREDO’S PRIVILEGE

First she gets picked up by the bus at a place where it is prohibited and ordinary citizens have to go to the bus terminal.

Now she gets to bring her pet dog to board a bus where it is prohibited and ordinary citizens are subjected to the strictly no pet policy.

Is Leni Robredo above the law?”

You can see the full Facebook post of Andre Olivar below.

“Pasaway kang babae ka. Sabing NO PETS ALLOWED sa bus eh.

Next time mag dadala ako ng KALABAW, kambing at manok sa bus para maibyahe ko rin mga alaga ko.

si LENI nga pwede eh.. eg di pwede sa lahat pati sa LRT magdadala ako ng kambing at kalabaw”
