Mar hits Duterte supporters who remain loyal despite Davao mayor’s blatant lies

HOW many times will you turn a blind eye to his blatant lies?

This was the reaction of Liberal Party standard-bearer Mar Roxas to Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte’s supporters who dismissed the issue of the latter’s alleged secret bank account as black propaganda to discredit their candidate.

“Well, they can say what they want. Pero muli, nahuli na naman ‘yung kanilang kandidato na nagsinungaling. Ilang beses sila magpipikit mata sa kasinungalingan na lantarang ginagawa?” Roxas said yesterday.

In a media briefing at the LP headquarters in Cubao, Quezon City, Roxas showed to the media supposed documents and deposit slips proving that Duterte and his daughter Sara had a Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) account which the mayor earlier denied owning.

Roxas also signed in front of reporters a notarized affidavit of transparency opening all his accounts, assets and financial transactions for public scrutiny.

Vice presidential candidate Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV, who is supporting presidential candidate Sen. Grace Poe, revealed to the Inquirer that Duterte’s account in BPI’s Julia Vargas Avenue branch in Pasig City contained P211 million deposits.

Duterte earlier dismissed it as a “fabrication” of Trillanes. He later admitted yesterday that the BPI account exists.

“By the way I’ve not spoken to Senator Trillanes since last year. ‘Yan yung mga gimmick nila eh, sasabihin na conspiracy ito, na usap-usapan ito ni Sen. Trillanes at ni Mar Roxas,” he said.
