PULONG DUTERTE TAGS TRILLANES AS BEHIND ACIERTO VIDEO
Presidential son Paolo “Pulong” Duterte said a video showing former police official Eduardo Acierto revealing his (Pulong) alleged links to illegal drugs is the handiwork of Senator Antonio Trillanes. Acierto also linked President Duterte to Chinese nationals alleged to be involved in drug dealing in the country.
If there’s anything admirable about Mr. Antonio Trillanes, it is his relentlessness and talent to turn the absurd into something ridiculous, if not bizarrely entertaining, said Pulong in a statement posted on Facebook, said the former Davao City Vice Mayor..
He may deny it, but the video supposedly showing my involvement in the illegal drug trade in the country has been clearly stamped with the indelible Trillanes signature of being a desperate mercenary, one who has done nothing good but attack the government, he said.
Trillanes of the Magdalo Party is the most vocal critic of President Rodrigo Duterte.
Last year, Trillanes instigated a Senate probe into the alleged link to smuggling of shabu of Pulong and brother-in-law Mans Carpio, husband of Pulong’s sister, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte..
The probe ended with the Senate clearing Pulong and carpio,
In the statement Pulong said:
“I have filed cases against Mr. Trillanes for ruining my name. I will file another string of cases for his continued attempts to destroy my reputation.”
“And no, I will not show the tattoo on my back and make things easier for Mr. Trillanes. Instead, I dare him and everyone behind the stupid and empty video exposé to back their claims against me.”
