Senator Win Gatchalian on Wednesday stated Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV ought to provide you with stable and convincing proof towards members of the First Family supposedly engaged in smuggling actions of the so-called “Davao Group.”
“I think when you accuse the First Family, the President, the bar of evidence is higher,” he stated.
Gatchalian again Sen. Richard Gordon’s refusal to have the blue ribbon committee to look deeper into Trillanes’ accusations towards the alleged smuggling operations of presidential son, Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte and presidential son-in-law, abogado Manases “Mans” Carpio, by means of the Davao Group.
Gordon’s committee is at present investigating the P6.Four-billion smuggled shabu from China and thus far, Gatchalian does seen any hyperlinks of Paolo or Carpio to the recent cargo.
“You have to have clear proof and direct knowledge on this type of accusation. It’s easy to accuse someone especially if it’s the President because he is a public figure. I don’t think the committee will be soft. The committee, especially the chairman is just raising the bar in terms of evidence, proof so that if we accuse, we make sure that this information is clearly validated,” Gatchalian defined.
