Ex-Cebu mayor Loot asks NBI to probe his alleged drug links: Para malinis pangalan ko!
Former Daantabayan, Cebu mayor Vicente Loot has asked the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to investigate him over his alleged activities in the illegal drugs trade.
The retired police brigadier general sought the NBI probe to clear his name after having been named by President Rodrigo Duterte as being involved in the narcotics trade.
“Knowing I am innocent of the charges from the very start, I respectfully request an independent investigation be conducted by your office on the matter to establish the truth about the accusations, past and present,” rtead his letter to NBI in Region VII.
“I had been the subject of much vilification and disinformation that even the President now believes them to be accurate,” he added.
Loot also assured the NBI he will make himself “available for interview or requests for information about my life and activities if it will help expedite your investigation.”
