Duterte admits Mabilog doesn’t produce drugs: Pero protektor naman!
President Rodrigo Duterte has clarified that Iloilo CIty Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog doesn’t manufacture illegal drugs.
Duterte, however, maintained that Mabilog is a narcopolitiko because he coddles drug personalities.
“Hindi ko sinasabi nagluluto siya. He was correct. He was not a producer of drugs,” the President said of Mabilog in a speech at the 56th aniversary of the Philippine Constitution Association Tuesday (September 26).
“But you know when the police says — ‘yan ang ayaw ko eh. ‘Pag sinabi ng Mayor, ‘Huwag mong pakialam ‘yan, leader ko ‘yan,'” he added.
Duterte has called Iloilo City the “most shabulized” locality in the country. Mabilog has denied the President’s allegations.
In an earlier speech at the Department of Justice’s 120th anniversary, Duterte said he wanted to invite Mabilog and his cousin, Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon, to a security briefing.
