Palace reacts to Joma’s bribe remark: Binabangungot siya!
By Prince Golez
Joma Sison must be having nightmares.
Malacanang had this to say on Monday after the exiled communist leader claimed that President Rodrigo Duterte has been “heavily bribed” by China.
“Not only misplaced, he is absolutely false what bribery is he talking about,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo told reporters.
In a statement, Sison, the founding chairman of the Communist Party of the Philippines, also accused Duterte of having ties to Chinese criminal triads that have long been involved in drug trafficking.
The relations between Duterte and Sison turned sour in 2017 when the former failed to deliver on his promise to release all political prisoners.
