Tasteless. This was how Sen. Sonny Trillanes described the supposed “idea” to prod the parents of 17-year-old Kian delos Santos to flash the clenched fist signal collectively with President Rodrigo Duterte.
Delos Santos’ parents met with the President in Malacanang on Monday upon the alleged invitation of the Chief Executive whereby the latter promised justice for his or her son killed in a drug raid on Aug. 16 in Caloocan City.
“Medyo tasteless lang ‘yung ‘fist’ gesture na ‘yun. Very tasteless un kung sinuman ung nagsabi nun,” the senator stated.
“Ano ba? Nagluluksa ‘yung pamilya eh gagamitin mo,” stated Trillanes, a critic of the Duterte administration’s conflict on medication.
VACC (Violence Against Crime and Corruption) Chairman Dante Jimenez and Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) Chief Persida Acosta accompanied the delos Santos couple to the Palace.
The President has prolonged monetary assist to the delos Santos couple in addition to vowed to hunt justice for his or her son, whom the Caloocan police claimed was a drug runner for his father and uncle.
