President Duterte has slammed the black propaganda dragging her youngest daughter Veronica to the illegal drug trade.
In apparent retaliation, the President threatened to release a foreign intelligence report tagging human rights advocates as allegedly behind the attacks against him.
“Human rights, son of a b*tch. Human rights, kayong mga black propaganda. Pati ‘yung anak kong si Veronica, 14 years old, drug addict? May ipalabas ako. You just wait [Human rights, son of a b*tch. Human rights, you’re behind the black propaganda. Accuse my daughter Veronica, 14, a drug addict? I’ll release it soon. You just wait],” he said during the PDP-Laban campaign rally in Tuguegarao City, Cagayan Tuesday.
The President admitted that the human rights groups critical of his government were under surveillance by a foreign entity. He said he was trying to “perfect” the document and will soon release it to the public.
“Alam mo, marami ka rin kaibigan sa ibang bayan. What you did not know is that you were being listened to habang ginagawa ninyo ‘yung kalokohan ninyo. Ilabas ko ‘yan in a few days. Pine-perfect ko lang [You know you have many friends abroad. What you did not know is that you were being listened to while you’re doing your foolishness. I will release it in a few days. I’m just trying to perfect it],” he said.
“It was an intelligence report, not from us but from another country. ‘Yan ang nagloloko sa iyo,” he added.
A controversial video recently accused the President’s daughter Veronica and wife Honeylet of allegedly receiving payoffs from illegal drug operations.
An earlier video, claiming to be the real narcolist, earlier implicated the President’s son former Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte to the narcotics trade, saying he also got money from the syndicate.
President Duterte, however, has denied that his son was involved in the narcotics trade, and accused instead political opposition of conducting the smear campaign against him.
