Osmeña denies meeting Leni, Trillanes in South Korea

CEBU, Philippines - Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña broke his silence on insinuations that he met with Vice President Leni Robredo and Senator Antonio Trillanes in South Korea during the Holy Week to discuss political issues.

Osmeña said he did not know Robredo and Trillanes were also in South Korea.

“I haven’t heard that Leni was there until I saw it in Facebook, and what’s wrong with that, Jessie Robredo was my best friend, so why make it sound even evil and devious to meet Leni Robredo,” Osmeña said.

   “I would be so honored that I know she would be there, I will look for her,” Osmeña added.

The mayor said the critics of the vice president are just making bad propaganda out of it.

“It’s a move to promote to bring down Leni and to move up Bongbong (Marcos), that’s how I look at it,” Osmeña said.
