Kiko confident Sharon, Sara immune to Duterte constant nagging on Juvenile Law
Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan is at peace with President Rodrigo Duterte’s constant jibes against him on the rising number of crimes committed by minors because he considered the Chief Executive a dear friend.
“In fairness to the President, ayaw talaga nya ‘yung pinasa nating batas sa Juvenile Justice (law),” he said.
Pangilinan confirmed that he was friends with Duterte from way back.
This is the reason why the then mayor asked Pangilinan for a favor to arrange a meeting between Duterte’s daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, and Pangilinan’s wife, actress and singer Sharon Cuneta, for Sara’s birthday.
“Magkaibigan naman talaga kami ever since 2000. Hindi pa ko senador pinupuntahan ko na siya sa Davao,” Pangilinan said.
As far as his wife and Mayor Sara are concerned, Pangilinan was certain that their “friendship” has not been affected by political differences.
“Siguro sanay na rin si Sharon dahil 15 years, ever since 2001, more than 15 to16 years na ko sa national office,” the senator said.
