MANILA, Philippines — Former President Benigno Aquino III maintains that the Liberal Party has no plans of destroying the current government.

He denied the allegation of being the man behind the rumored destabilization plot.

He believes that if ever there are attempts against the current administration, it is perhaps a decision of the people because of the failed promises of President Duterte.

“Wala kaming pinaplanong ganyan. Kung maganda ang ginagawa nila kuntento ang taumbayan magtatagumpay ang government. Pero kung hindi tama ang ang mga nangyayari, hindi natutupad ang mga ipinangako, hindi maintindihan ang sinasabi dun nagke-create ng dissatifiscation. Hindi sa amin nagmumula yun. Baka dapat tumingin sila sa paligid nila,” said the former president.

(We have no such plans. If their governance is good, then people are satisfied and the government is successful. But if things are not going well, promises are not fulfilled, statements are unclear, then it creates dissatifiscation. It’s not coming from us. Maybe they should look around them.)

Aquino believes there is no reason for President Duterte to declare a revolutionary government.

He added that there are appropriate provisions in the law that will surely address the problems the current administration is facing.

For its part, Malacañang stressed that, at this point, there is no legal basis for Pres. Duterte to declare a revolutionary government.

This, following reports of an alleged massive protest being brewed specifically for November 30 with the aim of pushing the president to declare such.

According to Malacañang, the government sees no threat against the government.

In fact, the majority of the Filipinos still expresses their support to the president.

“We appreciate the calls of president’s supporters for a revolutionary government but I think there is no factual or legal basis as of now because the president has said he would consider a revolutionary government if the destabilizers would persist in their plan to remove him from office,” said Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque. — Joan Nano| UNTV News & Rescue

Palace denies hand in filing of sedition raps vs Robredo, opposition

Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo

MANILA, Philippines – Malacañang on Friday denied involvement in the filing of sedition charges against Vice President Leni Robredo and other known opposition figures over the “Ang Totoong Narcolist” video series.

Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo insisted that the Palace had nothing to do with the complaint, when asked if the move is part of the Duterte administration’s “crackdown” against the opposition group.

“We have nothing to do with this case. None at all,” Panelo said in a statement.

The Philippine National Police-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG) on Thursday filed the complaint before the Department of Justice (DOJ) in connection with videos, where a certain Bikoy linked members of the Duterte family to the narcotics trade.

Peter Joemel Advincula, who claimed to be the hooded figure “Bikoy” in the videos, was named in the complaint as a witness and respondent.

Aside from Robredo, other named respondents in the complaint were former Senators Bam Aquino, Antonio Trillanes IV, Senators Risa Hontiveros, Leila de Lima and members of the Otso Diretso senatorial slate.

Cyber libel, estafa, and obstruction of justice charges were also filed by the police against a total of 38 respondents.

The opposition Liberal Party has branded the charges as “harassment” and “persecution”, while de Lima belittled the case, calling it “pure hogwash.”

“Pure hogwash ‘yung mga kaso na naman yan. Basura yun,” she said in an ambush interview before the hearing of the charges filed against her at Muntinlupa Regional Trial Court Branch 205.

Panelo, meanwhile, called on administration critics to let the justice system work to determine the truth about the issue. (with details from Rosalie Coz)
