Vice President Leni Robredo on Saturday laughed off accusations that she funded Friday's protest against the burial of the late strongman Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.

Robredo also tagged the claim as an insult to those who participated in the mass action, adding that she does not have the funds to organize such movements.

"Gustong sabihin na pinopondohan yung mga rallies, na nababayaran, binabayaran sila para mag attend ng rallies. Parang tingin ko insulto yun sa napakaraming sumasama na dahil naniniwala at nakikita kung ano yung tama saka mali," she said.

"Siguro yung ako ang pumupundo, lahat atang nakakakilala sakin wala namang maniniwala doon. Wala naman akong pera, alam ng lahat yun. Magpondo pa ng ganoon."

The Public Defenders, a group of President Duterte's supporters, had accused Robredo and the Liberal Party of being behind the protests which they said are meant to destroy the President and bring the party back into power.
