Risa Hontiveros to Sara Duterte ‘Confidential Funds Issue’: “Hindi ko hinihingi ang respeto mo”


In response to Vice President Sara Duterte’s recent statement against her, Senate Deputy Minority Leader Risa Hontiveros stated on Thursday, September 14, that she was not seeking for Duterte’s respect but accountability.

“Higit isang linggo na nag-hear tungkol sa secret funds, pero mais marami ka pang patutsada kaya sa paliwanag,” Senator Risa Hontiveros said.

“Hindi ko hinihingi ang respeto mo, VP Sara. Ang hinihingi ko sa iyo, at ng taumbayan, ay accountability. Kaya, i-account ‘nyo na lang kung para saan ang hinihingi ‘nyong confidential funds,” Hontiveros explained.

“I’m not asking for your respect, VP Sara; I’m asking for accountability, so just account for the confidential funds that you’re requesting,” Hontiveros continued.

If Duterte is unable to respect others who are government officials, she ought to recognize how public funds are meant to be used, according to the opposition senator.
