MANILA - The group behind the second impeachment complaint against Vice President Leni Robredo is preparing supplemental allegations against her, a spokesperson said Tuesday.

"We’re in the process of putting in some supplemental allegations because we found several more shady deals,” said Atty. Bruce Rivera in an interview with ANC's Headstart.

"The UN speech is not the major reason; it’s just a collateral reason. We have more reasons more damning," he added.

Earlier this month, Rivera's group, called the "Impeach Leni Movement" filed an impeachment complaint against her for allegedly betraying public trust over a video message she sent to the United Nations.

They also accused Robredo of misusing Pag-IBIG funds when she was chairman of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) and of sponsoring a national convention in the US, which was not connected to housing. 

Robredo earlier said she was unfazed by threats of impeachment as she denied allegations hurled against her, including claims that she had dishonored the country.
