"Tiningnan ko online yung mga questions na tinanong… Parang totally unnecessary, bastos na talaga yung iba," she said.

The House probe, originally meant to investigate the proliferation of drugs at the National Bilibid Prison in relation to Senator Leila De Lima, had been an avenue for irrelevant yet malicious questioning, said Robredo.

"Kung susundan natin yung mga tinatanong, wala siyang relevance sa investigation na kinoconduct. Parang ang nanyari talaga ay slut-shaming, pambabastos talaga," Robredo said.

She urged the lawmakers to set good examples to their constituents, that they may give respect to institutions like the HoR and to women in general.

"Pag hinahayaan natin na ganun yung actuations ng mga tinitingala natin, parang binibigyan natin ng lisensya yung mga ordinaryong mamamayan na ganun din ang gawin," she concluded.
