IN VIDEO: VP Leni Robredo Ipinahiya Sa America

As an off-season typhoon pummelled her home region, Vice President Leni Robredo found herself on the defensive for spending the Christmas break away from the Philippines.

 Amid criticism of her vacation in the United States, Robredo’s camp said she was helping in the relief operations for victims of Typhoon Nina (international name Nock-Ten) in Bicol.

Her spokesperson Georgina Hernandez said yesterday Robredo was coordinating relief efforts.

Hernandez said Robredo “has been monitoring and directing the Office of the Vice President (OVP) to work with regional officials and agencies in setting up local relief centers for immediate emergency response on the ground.”

Netizens lashed out at the Vice President for her absence as Nina battered the Bicol region on Sunday.

Robredo and her children are in the US for a family reunion, according to Hernandez. The vacation was planned more than a year ago, she said. “She will be going home to Naga as soon as she arrives,” Hernandez added. She did not give the date of her return.
