    A Lawyer of the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC) on Saturday said Vice President Leni Robredo could be cited in contempt of court for questioning the arrest order issued against Sen. Leila de Lima over drug charges.


    "Palagay ko isama na natin sa contempt of Court si Vice President Robredo for undermining the fate of the people and the Judiciary," VACC lawyer Ferdinand Topacio said in a forum.

    Robredo had said that De Lima's arrest “is the latest move in a persistent campaign of political harassment being waged against a duly elected member of Congress.”


    The senator's arrest was ordered by Judge Juanita Guerrero of the Muntinlupa City Regional Trial Court Branch 204.

    Topacio insisted that De Lima's arrest was not politically motivated and referred to it as a "momentous event."

    "Walang magic dito, walang impluwensiya dito," Topacio said. "Hindi siya ikinulong dahil siya ay kritiko ni Pangulong Duterte, that is beside the point."

    "Sa halip na sagutin nila 'yung mga akusasyon laban sa kanila sa tamang forum, puro technicality nila sa mga hearing, tapos sinasagot nila sa media. Hindi po iyon ang tama eh," he added.

    In the same forum, Negros Occidental Rep. Jacinto "Jing" Paras said Robredo should be ashamed of making such a comment against a court's order.
