This was after Robredo sent a recorded video to the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs for the United Nations' 60th anniversary where she called for intervention at the situation of the Philippines now that President Rodrigo Duterte's drug war is in place.

According to Alvarez, Robredo's pronouncements before an international audience betrayed public trust which is an impeachable offense under the 1987 Philippine Constitution.

"Ang pananaw ko dito mayroong betrayal of public trust... Sa buong buhay ko, ngayon lang ako nakakita ng isang mataas na opisyal ng gobyerno na walang pakundangan siraan ang ating bansa sa international community... Ano ang magiging epekto noon economically?" he said.
