Former senatorial candidate Florin Hilbay has nothing but praises for Vice President Leni Robredo, who recently took the challenge of President Rodrigo Duterte to become a co-chair of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD).

“Walang yabang at walang inaaway. Walang mga pasabog at propaganda. Kalmado. Pilipinas, ito ang tunay na lider,” the former Solicitor General added

President Duterte offered the position to Robredo last week after he was irked by the latter’s claim that his controversial crackdown on narcotics is not working.

Meanwhile, according to earlier reports, the Vice President would like to bring justice to those who died in the government’s campaign against illegal drugs.

Aside from that, Robredo will also push for transparency as anti-drug co-chairperson.

Barry Gutierrez, Robredo’s legal adviser, said the vice president wanted to bring justice to those “unjustly killed” as she takes on her new.

“So that means those police officers currently being investigated, those police officers who have actually been charged in connection with unlawful deaths in the conduct of drug war.

“The vice president has always been strong proponent of transparency in governance,” he said.
