Duterte defends son, son-in-law anew, calls Trillanes' corruption allegations 'trash'


MANILA — President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday defended his son and son-in-law against Sen. Antonio Trillanes' allegations that they were involved in corrupt activities at the Bureau of Customs (BOC).
Trillanes had, in particular, accused Duterte's son-in-law, lawyer Manse Carpio, of having transactions with the BOC, citing his appearances at the bureau.
The President said Carpio, husband of Duterte's daughter Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, was only doing his job as a lawyer. Carpio had earlier explained he had clients with transactions at the BOC. 
"Kami hong mga abogado, lawyering is lawyering. Hindi ka magkaroon ng motive na tumanggap ito for whatever reason," said Duterte, a former prosecutor.
"Abogado 'yan pati ang balae ko. Lawyering is lawyering," Duterte said in a speech at the 11th founding anniversary of the military's Eastern Mindanao Command in Davao City.
The President also asserted that evidence should be shown to prove that his son Paolo is guilty of corruption.
"Now itong anak kong si Pulong, sinabi ko, bigyan niyo ako ng affidavit, may camera, may audio mas maganda, at narinig ko "ito bayad sa ano'," he said.
"I have assured you, noon pa, pag-upo ko, kasi importante yan eh, your trust. Sabi ko kung itong mga anak ko masabit sa corruption, pinangalanan ko si Pulong, Inday pati si Sebastian, because I am only responsible only for my sons and daughters," he added.
Taguba has since cleared the Vice Mayor and Carpio of any involvement in alleged corruption at the BOC.
Trillanes, a minority senator and fierce Duterte critic, on Thursday pressed the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee to summon the younger Duterte and Carpio to its ongoing inquiry on BOC corruption. 
But majority senators, the panel chair Sen. Richard Gordon and Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III, said Taguba should first show solid proof against the two. 
"Now, kung may ebidensya, ‘wag yung kay Trillanes kasi basura naman talaga lahat ‘yan," he said.
The President again said he was willing to step down if the Filipino people no longer find him honest and credible.
"Pagdating ng panahon na nakita niyo ako binobola ko kayo, you are free to advise me to step down or I myself would step down," said Duterte. 
"Kapag ako nawalan ng silbi at hindi na kayo maniwala sa aking mga salita, if you no longer find any honor in my words, then there is no reason why I have to insist on leading a country," he added.

  1. Mga minamahal kung PILIPINO,
    Hindi niyo pa ba nahahalata?
    Binawi ni Digong sa PNP ang anti drug campaign at ipinasolo na lng sa PDEA?
    Kasi kailangan na nila ma idispose o maibenta yung missing na tonetoneladang shabu na ipinuslit ni polong.
    So kailangang bitawan ng PNP dahil pag patuloy ang campaign kuno ng PNP wala silang mapapagpush ng mga missing na shabu. kaya sinabi ni Bato na sigurado sila na matapos bawiin ni Digong sa kanila ang Pamumuno sa anti drug campaign eh dadami na nman ang addict, eh kasi nga kayo ang magpapakalat eh, kasi kayo lang ang nakakaalam kung nasan at paano peperahin ang mga missing na shabu na ngayon ay nakalimutan na o sadyang ibinaon sa limot ng mga bias na senador para makalimutan na din si polong at si Tita Nanie.
    GETS?
    @Bato - Kung Makapagsalita ka parang wala kang tiwala sa PDEA, may pa no hard feelings ka pang nalalaman, eh alam naman namin na kapag naibenta niyo na ang mga epektus niyo mamaliitin niyo na nman si PDEA at sasabihin niyong hindi nila kaya.
    Then pagkatapos niyan mag dedecide na naman si Digong na kayo na ulit sa anti drug campaign, natural kayo rin ang nakakaalam kung sinong pagpapapatayin kasi kayo ang nag benta sa kanila eh tsk tsk tsk...
    Good luck sa poon niyo.
    @PAB we support you, tuloy lang ang laban, matapang sina Thinking Pinoy kasi sipsip sila kay Digong, pero mas matapang ka dahil from anonymous nagpakilala ka at handang lumaban para punahin ang kamalian ng administration.
