President Rodrigo Duterte accused the Liberal Party and the Senator Antonio Trillanes IV of “playing dirty” for uploading “Totoong Narcolist” of ex-con, con-man Peter Joemel Advincula.
While he took the “Totoong Narcolist” a personal attack against his family and top aide, Duterte said his narcolist of barangay captains, mayors, governors and congressmen had a purpose and was gathered and vetted by the s – Philippine National Police, Philipine Drug Enforcement Agency, National Bureau of Investigation, National Intelligence Coordinating Agency and Intelligence Service, Armed Forces of the Philippines.
“They (LP, Trillanes) aren’t worth anything. Just look at them. Look at how dirty they play. It’s very dirty. I released the list of the names of mayors and barangay captains, but my God. I had nothing to do with it. Compilation ‘yun sa police, PDEA, NBI, NICA, ISAFP. ‘Yun ‘yun. When they gave it to me, it was already prepared. ‘Yung official report na memo to the President, ganun,” said Duterte in a speech in Bohol.
“I released it because the public are entitled to know. I revealed the names of those seeking public office,” he added.
Duterte said he has a narcolist of actors but he declined to publicize it they were not running for public office anyway. “There is no accountability for what they are doing except to themselves and maybe the Board of Censors. So let’s not include them anymore. They are not part of this. They just want to become actors,” said Duterte.
“You have to be fair. What have they got to do with this? But if they are seeking public office, then I would tell the people that you know, you solve that,” he added.
Among the persons tagged in the “Totoong Narcolist” are Duterte’s son, Paolo, who was running for Congress and his former aide, Bong Go, who is running for senator.
