President Duterte asked Senator Drilon to explain his alleged ties with Napoles and ex-Iloilo Mayor Mabilog.

President Rodrigo Duterte turned his attention to Senator Franklin Drilon and asked him to explain his alleged ties with Janet Lim-Napoles and former Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog.

President Duterte and Senator Drilon

The President said in his “Talk to the People” address aired Saturday morning that Senate Minority Leader Drilon might want to explain his links to Napoles since he wanted to talk about corruption.

Since you have proclaimed yourself and your friends there in the Senate as anti-corruption czars, please enlighten [us], Mr. Senator,” President Duterte addressed Senator Drilon.

The President mentioned one of Senator Drilon’s alleged encounters with Napoles in Heritage Park in Taguig City and cited that even Senator Drilon’s colleague in the Senate claimed that the senator gave something to Napoles to return the favor.

According to the President, Senator Drilon claimed that he only met Napoles around 10 times but pictures supposedly showed their closeness. President Duterte also alleged that Napoles had contributed PHP 5 million to Senator Drilon’s campaign.

Meanwhile, President Duterte encouraged Senator Drilon to explain his alleged ties to retired police Gen. Marcelo Garbo Jr. and former Iloilo City Mayor Jed Mabilog.

The President also prodded the senator to reveal to the public the owner of the biggest mall in Iloilo City and who brokered the sale of the old Iloilo City Airport to a large real estate company.

We are just curious, Mr. Senator,” President Duterte said.

President Duterte’s statement came as he defended anew the national government’s procurement of pandemic supplies during his latest Talk to the People address aired on Saturday morning.

On Saturday, Senator Franklin Drilon had dismissed the claim of the President, saying that all he heard about the issue was “old news”.
