After Duterte`s apology, Pangasinan Rep. Espino called the President as `true leader, gentleman`
When President Rodrigo Duterte revealed the drug matrix that allegedly involved in illegal drug trade inside the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) last month, the name of Pangasinan Rep. Amado Espino Jr. is on the list.
According to Abs-Cbn News, Duterte on Tuesday, September 29, apologized and cleared some of the names included to the drug trade.
In his speech in Arayat Pampanga, he apologized to Espino, Raul Sison and Raffy Baraan.
“I think somehow we were negligent in counter-checking during the first report. So to Espino and to Sison, at kay Baraan - yung kapatid, huwag yung undersecretary dahil sabit talaga yun - I would like to apologize to you publicly, and I would say now, I’m very sorry,” Duterte said.
“But trabaho ko iyan, it is part of my territory. I cannot be perfect and sometimes you are correct when you say that life is never fair,” he added.
In an interview to Espino, he said that he is humbled when President Duterte cleared his involvement on the alleged drug matrix that was released last August 25, 2016.

“My family, friends and the people of Pangasinan would like to express our gratitude to the President for being a true leader and gentleman,” he said.
“He has my highest esteem for the courageous and bold statement of apology on clearing my name, Raffy Baraan and Raul Sison,” he added.
