The former president of the Liberal Party (LP) has denied the allegations of Peter Joemel Advincula – the man claiming to be “Bikoy” – who said they goaded him into producing the “Ang Totoong Narcolist” video series circulating online.

In a press release, former LP president Francis Pangilinan denied Advincula’s allegations, calling them lies invented by the administration to divert the public’s attention from their “failures and corruption.”

“Kasinungalingan lahat ang mga paratang na yan.” Pangilinan said, “Gawa-gawa lang ng Administrasyon,

“Laging dinadamay ang LP sa mga ouster plot na gawa-gawa lang para pagtakpan ang mga palpak at kurakot sa Administrasyon,” he added.

Pangilinan was the president of the LP during the circulation of the “Narcolist” videos before he resigned last Tuesday, citing the Otso Diretso defeat in the recent polls.

The first of the five “Narcolist” videos surfaced on April 2, which claimed that drug money was funneled to bank accounts that allegedly belonged to the Presidential son Paolo Duterte.

The next four videos also named President Duterte’s 15-year-old daughter Veronica, senator-elect Christopher “Bong” Go and lawyer Manases Carpio, husband of Davao City Mayor Sara among others who accepted payoffs from drug syndicates through bank transfers.

“Kahit ang pagpatay kay Rizal aaminin ng testigo na yan sa takot sa maaring gawin ng Administrasyon sa kanya o sa mga mahal niya sa buhay,” Pangilinan said.

“Ano na naman kaya ang baho na tinatago ng Administrasyon kaya inilabas ang mga kasinungalingang ito?” he added.
