Drilon denies involvement in drugs linking him to his cousin Iloilo Mayor
Tuesday, November 22, Senator Franklin Drilon denied the allegation that he is involved in the illegal drug trade linking him to his second cousin Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog who was tagged by President Rodrigo Duterte in his narcolist.
“Wala pong pruwebang ipinakita na si Mayor Mabilog ay involved sa droga… You need not be a lawyer to understand that logic he who alleges should prove the accusation,” Drilon said.
"Up to now walang ebidensya, in fairness naman. With the social media today, kung sasabihin mong ang tao ay may pagkukulang lalo na sa ganitong maselan na bagay, sana naman may matibay na ebidensya,” he added.
Amid the rising death toll of Duterte's campaign against illegal drugs, Drilon said that the country is definitely in a serious drug problem.
“There is a drug problem. I’m not prepared to say it is exaggerated because I haven’t really examined the evidence. I dint have in my possession the information to make that kind of statement. But certainly I do not find killing as a way of solving the problem,” he said.
“It’s a question of what kind of policies or remedy should be adopted to solve this problem,” he added.
