Former Special Assistant to the President Bong Go has shrugged off the allegations he is linked to the illegal drug trade by the man claiming to be the whistleblower Bikoy.
Go took off his shirt anew at a press conference in Calamba, Laguna Monday (May 6) after Peter Joemel Advincula surfaced at the Integrated Bar of the Philippines’ headquarters in Pasig to testify he is the “Bikoy” featured in the video series, “Ang Totoong Narco List.”
Advincula claimed to have seen Go’s alleged back tattoo because he supposedly scanned the code imprinted in it for transactions when he was a member of the drug syndicate.
In jest, President Rodrigo Duterte’s former aide said Advincula wanted to see his fat rolls again since he had previously taken off his shirt to disprove Bikoy’s claim in the video that he has a back tattoo.
“May sinabi siya noon na kapag ipinakita ko ang aking likod ay titigil na siya. Hinubad ko na at ipinakita ang aking likod. Wala kayong nakitang tattoo. Palagay ko, gusto naman niyang makita ang aking bilbil,” Go said.
He said Advincula should not have gone to IBP for legal protection since the government is capable of protecting him against the supposed threats to his life.
“Pero dapat muna sa tingin ko, dapat muna magpa-admit muna siya sa mental hospital,” Go said.
The senatorial candidate dismissed Advincula’s allegations as part of a smear campaign related to the upcoming elections. He lamented that Duterte’s family is being dragged into the mess to hurt his candidacy.
