Bulacan mayor says his inclusion in narco-list “product of wrong info”
SAN RAFAEL, BULACAN — Mayor Cipriano Violago of this town said his inclusion in the so-called “narco-list” was a product of wrong information fed to President Duterte.
Violago, who was also part of the narco-list that Duterte released in 2016, said his name has already been cleared by the Philippine National Police and the Department of the Interior and Local Government at the local level.
The mayor is running for reelection and said his political rival could be behind his inclusion in the new list.
“Ngunit may humarang nito sa mas mataas na tanggapan, sa Office of the President, hindi natin masisi ang Pangulo kung nabibigyan siya ng maling impormasyon ng tao na ito na noon pa man ay gusto na tayong siraan dahil sa ambisyon nitong maging mayor ng ating bayan. Kawawa naman, na-karma agad ang taong ito, mula noon at nagkaron ng malubhang sakit,” Violago said in his Facebook post on Thursday night.
