OSG Calida offers ‘Bikoy’ legal assistance
After recanting his statements implicating President Duterte and his family in the illegal drugs trade, Peter Joemel Advincula was offered legal assistance by the Office of the Solicitor General.
An official of the Department of Justice, who refused to be identified for lack of authority to speak, revealed this development.
The source disclosed that the OSG supposedly made the offer shortly after Advincula turned himself in to the Northern Police District.
In his retraction, Advincula divulged that the “Ang Totoong Narco List” videos were the brainchild of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, the staff of jailed Senator Leila de Lima, and Senator Risa Hontiveros.
