(Eagle News)–Senators Kiko Pangilinan and Franklin Drilon on Thursday, May 23, denied the Liberal Party had anything to do with “Bikoy” and the videos against President Rodrigo Duterte, his family and his allies.
“Kasinungalingan ang lahat ng mga paratang na yan. Gawa gawa lang ng administrasyon,” Pangilinan, president of LP, said.
Drilon, a member of the party, agreed.
According to Drilon, “that the Liberal Party connived with an obviously professional con artist to topple the government is most absurd.”
“It is ridiculous on so many levels. It’s excruciating to have listened to all his lies,” Drilon said.
Pangilinan for his part said the ouster plot narrative was being used to cover up for the “mistakes” and “corruption” of the administration.
“Hanggang ngayon wala pa rin mga drug lords at sindikato na nahuhuli o nakakukulong sa pagpuslit ng toneladang shabu sa BoC. Yan ba ang pinagtatakpan nila? Pekeng drug war? Yang mga sindikato ng droga ang dapat nilang habulin, hindi mga kritiko at mga nasa oposisyon,” Pangilinan said.
According to Pangilinan, “kahit ang pagpatay kay Rizal aaminin ng testigo na yan sa takot sa maaring saktan siya o pamilya nya ng mga tauhan ng Administrasyon na ito.”
“Having said that, I urge the Philippine National Police to get to the bottom of this Bikoy issue and file the appropriate charges,” Drilon said.
