Vice President Leni Robredo was in defense against the accusations being thrown to her co-Liberal party members, Sen. Franklin Drilon and Mar Roxas as top drug protectors.
According to Robredo, there was no basis for the said accusation. She added that if there’s any case against the two officials it should be filed immediately in court.
It was noted that confessed drug bagman Ricky Serenio named Iloilo City Mayor Jed Mabilog, Drilon and Roxas as drug protectors in his sworn affidavit.
The Department of Justice said that the affidavid of Serenio will be the basis to open an investigation regarding the said issue.
Drilon and Roxas denied this allegation.
The ombudsman already issued a notice to oust Mayor Mabilog in his post. Sen. Drilon and Mabilog are first cousins.
Robredo defends Roxas and Drilon against this allegations of involvement in illegal drug transactions.
