Hindi takot! Daanbantayan mayor Loot says he’s cleared from drug allegations

Daanbantayan Mayor Vicente Loot – one of the so-called “narco-politicians” named by President Rodrigo Duterte – said that he’s not worried for his life even after the killing of Ozamiz City Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog.

“The PNP is my protector and not an aggressor. We both knew the rules of engagement and I’m the last person to defy police authority,” Loot maintained.

Loot, Parojinog, and former Cebu City mayor Michael Rama were tagged by no less than the President last year as involved in illegal drug trade.

Parojinog and several others were killed during a raid in their residence last Sunday. Vice Mayor Princess Nova Parojinog was arrested.

Loot said that the police has already cleared his name from the allegations last November, as he claimed that he was just a victim of influence peddling by his subordinates.

Loot said that he’s willing to be investigated again just to prove that he’s not involved in any illegal acts.
