Vice President Leni Robredo is no longer surprised that Larry Gadon is now the abogado of ex-convict Peter Joemel Advincula in the criminal charges he is facing over the “Ang Totoong Narco List” video series.
Robredo sarcastically said Sunday (July 21) that Gadon and Advincula make a good team.
“Alam naman natin na sinungaling iyong witness. Iyong sa abogado niya, parang hilig din naman talaga iyan, pero… Maganda. Sobrang bagay,” she said on her weekly radio show, Biserbisyong Leni.
The Philippine National Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) filed before the Department of Justice complaints of inciting to sedition, libel, cyber libel and obstruction of justice against Robredo and 35 others over the “Ang Totoong Narco List” video series.
One of the CIDG’s witnesses was Peter Joemel Advincula, the ex-convict who claimed to be the whistleblower “Bikoy” in the series.
Gadon confirmed that he helped Advincula execute his affidavit, which the CIDG used in filing the cases.
