Davao City 1st District Congressman-elect Paolo Z. Duterte has called for a proper investigation over the controversial Bikoy videos in light of the recent admission by self-confessed Bikoy whose real name is Peter Joemel Advincula.
In a press conference Thursday, May 23, at the Philippine National Police headquarters in Camp Crame, Advincula revealed that outgoing Senator Antonio Trillanes IV was the mastermind behind the series of Bikoy videos where most members of the Duterte family were implicated in the international drug syndicate.
Advincula said that Trillanes masterminded the whole Bikoy thing including the so-called exposè of Eduardo Acierto implicating former Malacañang adviser Michael Yang in the international drug syndicate.
Also implicated in the alleged drug ring is senator-elect Christopher “Bong” Go who, Bikoy claimed, has a dragon tattoo and a serial number at the back of his body as proof of his involvement in the drug syndicate.
Bikoy also claimed the same for incoming Rep. Paolo Duterte. Both denied Bikoy’s claim with Go even showing the back of his body to prove otherwise.
In a statement posted at his Facebook account Thursday, Paolo Duterte said that “from the very start, it was clear that the Bikoy videos were fabricated with a narrative taken straight from the playbook of people whose desire is to destroy our name and our reputation.”
“All the lies presented were also meant to crush the trust of the Filipino people in the authorities and inspire public disgust against the government — truly the handiwork of people who want to undermine the Duterte administration,” the presidential son said.
Paolo added that “without a doubt, as I have said before, Senator Antonio Trillanes was behind it.”
“And now that many names have also surfaced, to include Sen. Risa Hontiveros and several lawyers, I believe a proper investigation is in order,” he said.
Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte meanwhile said that “Bikoy is a scam created by people who oppose the Duterte administration. This group is so disorganized they cannot even get to first base because the path to their objective is in disarray. Kung ako leader ng grupo na ito, I will shoot myself in the head, get rid of the brain that is not useful.”
