Otso Diretso supporter Bong Banal denies narrating ‘Ang Totoong Narco List’ videos: Nakuryente uli si Panelo!
Former advertising executive Bong Banal has denied he is the narrator of the video series linking President Rodrigo Duterte’s family to the illegal drug trade.
In a Facebook post, Bong Banal criticized Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo for linking him to the “Ang Totoong Narco List” videos.
“For the record, HINDI po ako ang narrator ng BIKOY video. Atty. Pañelo, sa laki ng intel budget ninyo, paano kayo nakuryente ng ganito ka-maling info?” he asked.
Banal noted that from being accused as the self-confessed whistleblower Bikoy, he is now named the narrator of “Ang Totoong Narco List.”
“Dati, sabi ng DDS na si Niño Barzaga, AKO si Bikoy. Ngayon, according to the you na Presidential Spokesman, AKO yung narrator. Ano ho ba talaga ako sa video Atty. Pañelo: si Bikoy o yung narrator?” he said.
Panelo named Banal as the narrator of “Ang Totoong Narco List” in a press briefing in Malacañang earlier in the day.
“There was an analysis of the voices. As I said earlier, it appears that the narrator in the ‘Bikoy’ video is Bong Banal. Their voices are the same,” he said, adding that Banal is a “known advocate of the Liberal Party.”
Banal’s Facebook profile features several posts about Vice President Leni Robredoo and the opposition Otso Diretso slate. There are also posts critical ofo Duterte.
The former advertising executive said that while he find the whole issue funny, he is also bothered by it because he is against powerful people.
“Lord, bless them for they do not know what they do,” he said.
