Senator Antonio Trillanes IV shared Tuesday (June 11) text messages and videos involving Peter Joemel Advincula, the man claiming to be the whistleblower Bikoy in “Ang Totoong Narco List” video series, to prove he had nothing to do with his actions.
Trillanes said the text messages were exchanged between Advincula and the religious people who gave him sanctuary sometime last year.
One of the text messages read: “Padre tumulong sa hindi si Trillanes itutuloy ko ito! Naumpisahan ko na 2 tatapusin ko ito! Kahit utangin man d2 buhay ko! Yan na po ang desisyon ko!”
“Kung ako ang nagbibigay sa kanya bakit siya nagsasabi ng ganito. Siya yung nangungulit sa mga nagkukukokop sa kanya. Kabaligtaran na ito ay sinusubo sa kanya na parang siya ay robot na sinususian,” Trillanes said.
In the video series, Advincula as Bikoy accused Duterte’s family and allies of involvement in the illegal drug trade. Later, however, he recanted his statement and claimed he was used by the opposition as part of a destabilization plot against the government,
Advincula tagged Trillanes as among the opposition figures who supposedly planned to topple government.
Aside from the text messages, Trillanes also showed a video of Advincula talking to someone who was not caught on camera. He said the clip proves the ex-convict acted on his own.
“Ang point dito nakita n’yo ba na may script? Dinidiktahan siya ng kung sino? Ang mga alegasyon niya nanggagaling sa kanya with feelings pa, ‘di ba?” he said.
