Statement of Senator Trillanes re Duterte's verbal attacks against me

I will not stoop down to his level of name-calling. The bottom line is this, his son and son-in-law were named as the masterminds behind the Davao Group and are being suspected of being involved in smuggling operations that led to the express entry of the 6.4 billion peso shabu shipment into the country. Those are not my allegations but information extracted from Sen. Gordon's witnesses during the hearings. Moreover, this is not the first time that Paolo Duterte has been involved in smuggling and illegal drugs. Way back in 2007, there were derogatory reports from the NBI and the Presidential Anti-Smuggling Group about Paolo Duterte's involvement in smuggling in BoC in Davao City Port. Then Edgar Matobato also testified about Paolo's dealings with Customs officials in Davao City. Lastly, in Lascanas' testimony, he was mentioned as having helped a certain Charlie Tan in drug smuggling.

Si President Duterte ay nagpapanic dahil malapit na mabunyag ang mga illegal na gawain ng kanilang pamilya. Kaya naman pala bilyon -bilyon ang pera nila sa bangko.
