Umamin din: Ex-ISAFP chief Corpus apologizes to Lacson after 16 years
After 16 long years, retired Intelligence Service of the Armed Forces of the Philippines chief Victor Corpus finally admitted he was wrong in linking Sen. Panfilo Lacson to drugs and other illegal activities.
Corpus, who headed the ISAFP after the EDSA-2 revolt in 2001, read his “public apology” in a video posted on social media on Holy Monday.
The post on the Facebook page of “Punto de Labra” said the apology was aired last Saturday, April 8, on a talk show on Global News Network (GNN). The end part of the video showed columnist Herman Tiu Laurel.
In his apology, Corpus said the source of his information linking Lacson to illegal activities such as drugs was “devious and a fraud.”
“This grievous mistake that I have committed maligned the reputation of Sen. Panfilo Lacson. With this grave error on my part, I humbly and sincerely offer my public apology to Sen. Lacson and his entire family,” Corpus said.
While Corpus did not elaborate, he was referring to Angelo “Ador” Mawanay, a self-proclaimed witness who accused Lacson of involvement in illegal activities but failed to substantiate his claims.
Mawanay had also made a complete turnaround in 2004, denying the allegations he made.
