President Rodrigo Duterte has accused Filipino-American millionaire Loida Nicolas Lewis of funding the Amnesty International (AI) to attract world consideration to the warfare on unlawful medication.
In an interview in Malacañang after the bilateral talks with Brunei’s Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah Thursday (April 27), Duterte shrugged off AI’s name for the ASEAN to take a stand towards drug-related killings.
“That is not an issue. You are funny. Bakit kayo makialam sa amin dito? Magagalit pa ‘yung mga Presidente na…,” he mentioned.
Duterte mentioned politics is clearly behind AI’s newest transfer– and Lewis is funding it.
Alam mo mga pulitika ‘yan eh itong mga pera ni Loida ‘yan. Mga buddies buddies diyan sa Amerika pa kuno,” he mentioned.
Lewis helped fund the Liberal Party’s presidential camapign within the 2016 polls.
After Duterte gained, she was accused of funding efforts to overthrow the federal government or oust the President from energy.
