Contents of Robredo's documents Puno allegedly tried to access

Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) undersecretary Rico Puno and several police officers allegedly tried to enter the condominium unit of the late DILG secretary Jesse Robredo in Quezon City a day after his plane crashed in Masbate, ABS-CBN News reports, citing unnamed sources.

The building’s security logbook showed that the group, composed of Puno, a certain Supt. Oliver Tanseco, Sr. Supt. Joel Pagdilao and one Apollo Reuben Toganon, arrived 10:30 a.m. at the condominium, the ABS-CBN report said.

Robredo’s househelp reportedly did not allow the group to enter the late secretary’s condo unit.

Tanseco, the report said, called Robredo’s lawyer to ask permission, but the latter also turned them down for lack of a search warrant.

Allegedly, Puno’s group were trying to get confidential documents that were kept inside Robredo’s condo unit.


After the failed ‘raid’, Puno’s group went to Robredo’s offices at the DILG and at the National Police Commission (Napolcom), sources reportedly told ABS-CBN News.

The incident prompted President Benigno Aquino III to task the Department of Justice to secure Robredo’s offices and documents, the report said.

Justice Secretary Leila de Lima did not reveal what the documents are all about, but noted that they are “sensitive records,” the report said.

ABS-CBN’s sources reportedly said Puno and several PNP officials are the subjects of an investigation conducted by Robredo, due to a questionnable “gun deal,” prior to his death.

On Thursday, September 6, TV Patrol anchor Noli de Castro said ABS-CBN News already obtained a copy of the controversial documents. The contents of which are expected to be unveiled in a special report on the news program’s telecast on Friday, September 7.
