Vice-President Maria Leonor Robredo is worth P8,878,111.43 by the end of 2016, reporting that her wealth shrank by P2.175 million during the first six months of her term.
This was 19.7 percent lower than the P11,053,138 net worth Ms. Robredo reported during the time she entered office on June 30.
These figures were taken from the two Statements of Assets, Liabilities and Net Worth filed for 2016. The June 2016 figures were contained in her undated entry SALN marked received on August 1 last year, while the December 2016 figures were declared in her annual SALN filed this April 27.
The Philippine Daily Inquirer obtained the three-page SALNs from the Office of the Ombudsman on Tuesday, subject to a P30 processing fee.
Both SALNs disclosed Ms. Robredo’s business interest in Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) as “shares of stock” for “different years.” She did not specify just how much her stake at the corporation was.
Unlike President Rodrigo Duterte, Robredo did not give up her business interest.
Mr. Duterte’s assets grew to P28.43 million by the end of 2016, from P25.18 million when he entered office.
To compare, President Benigno Aquino III’s wealth increased during the first semester of his presidency by P4.8 million. According to the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism, his declared net worth are as follows: P54.999 million in December 2010, P50.19 million in June 2010, and only P15.44 million in December 2009 prior to the campaign period.
