Senator Ping Lacson pities detained Senator Leila de Lima for asking the public to take seriously ex-convict Peter Joemel Advincula’s allegations that the First Family was involved in illegal drugs.

“Kawawa rin si Sen Leila kasi di ba meron siyang pahayag na tingnan mabuti ang sinasabi ni Bikoy. Kaya nang nabasa ko ang kanyang pahayag naisip ko lang na if she only knew noong 2016 siya ang dinadawit. Palagay ko di siya magpapahayag ng ganyan,” said Lacson in a DZBB interview..

Advincula admitted Monday that he was the anonymous whistleblower “Bikoy” in the “Totoong Narcolist” video which accused President Rodrigo Duterte’s children, son-in-law and top aide of getting payoffs from drug lords.

On Wednesday. Senate President Tito Sotto revealed Advincula’s 2016 affidavit in which he tagged former President Rodrigo Duterte and his top officials, including de Lima, as the recipients of drug money. Sotto said he junked Advincula’s claim three years ago because it was a fake.

In his 2016 affidavit, Advincula said that he saw de Lima meet with the “Quadrangle” drug syndicate at the Misibis Bay Resort on December 28, 2010. Advincula claimed that de Lima and Dayan entered the “underground room” together.

Advincula also reported that de Lima brought with her Aquino, former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas, former Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa, former Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala and former Interior Undersecretary Rico Puno to meet with then Albay Governor Joey Salceda in April 2011. Advincula claimed that de Lima brought Aquino anew to Misibis on September 2011 and April and July 2012. Advincula claimed that both Aquino and de Lima received a brown envelope every time they visited Misibis Bay.

In her statement, de Lima said authorities should take seriously Advincula’s charges because he was willing to “risk his life to expose what he knows about the alleged illegal drugs involvement of the family and close friends of President Duterte.”

“Hindi nila pwedeng balewalain si ‘Bikoy’ at basta na lang bansagang peke o bayaran gaya ng sinasabi ni Paolo Duterte na inaakusahang isa sa mga ‘principals’ o ‘Patron’ ng malaking sindikato ng droga sa bansa,” said de Lima.
