(Eagle News)–Former Davao Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte on Thursday, May 23, called on authorities to investigate the allegations made by Peter Joemel Advincula against the Liberal Party and Senator Antonio Trillanes IV.
“Without a doubt, as I have said before, (Trillanes) was behind (the “Ang Totoong Narco-list”) video. And now that many names have also surfaced, to include Senator Risa Hontiveros and several lawyers, I believe a proper investigation is in order,” the presidential son, who was among those accused of being engaged in the illegal drug trade in the videos, said.
According to Paolo, “from the very start, it was clear that the Bikoy videos were fabricated with a narrative taken straight from the playbook of people whose desire is to destroy our name and our reputation.”
He said “all the lies presented were also meant to crush the trust of the Filipino people in the authorities and inspire public disgust against the government — truly the handiwork of people who want to undermine the Duterte administration.”
For his sister, Sara, the Davao mayor, the group behind “Bikoy” the “scam” was “so disorganized they cannot even get to first base because the path to their objective is in disarray.”
“Kung ako leader ng grupo na ito, I will shoot myself in the head, get rid of the brain that is not useful,” she said.
