Blogger and known supporter of the President, Sass Sasot, shared Hontanosas message on her Facebook page.

Hontanosas said he has problems with his FOI request to the OVP. He requested for Robredo's travel expenses but they rejected it because they said he did not reasonably describe the purpose of his request.

Office of the Vice President of the Philippines REJECTED AN FOI REQUEST REGARDING TRAVEL EXPENSES OF VP ROBREDO!

The irony of it: Leni Robredo filed the FOI bill when she was a congresswoman.

From the requester:

Ms. Sasot, I just viewed your post regarding your FOI request to the OSG. I too also have problems with my FOI request but not from the OSG but to the Office of the VP. I requested for Leni's travel expenses but they rejected it because they said that I did not reasonably describe the purpose of my request. My question is, how do you reasonably describe your purpose for a Freedom of Information request? I have written several FOI requests to diff. agencies and neither one of them rejected me because of my purpose. Even the LRTA approved my request for their Registry of Gifts. Hoping you can read this.

Thanks.
