Project Sodoma: ‘Bikoy’ says opposition wanted Duterte ousted
MANILA, Philippines — The opposition wanted to unseat President Rodrigo Duterte and install Vice President Leni Robredo, the man claiming to be behind the “Ang Totoong Narcolist” video series claimed Thursday.
According to Peter Joemel Advincula, who claims he was “Bikoy,” senators and key officials of the Liberal Party (LP) employed him to do “Project Sodoma,” which supposedly entailed installing Senator Antonio Trillanes IV as vice president once Robredo ascended the presidency.
“Ilang beses kaming nagpupulong, nagpaplano, upang isakatuparan ang Project Sodoma. Ang Project Sodoma ay isang proyekto para pabagsakin si Presidente Duterte at ang maka-upo sa posisyon si Vice President Leni Robredo,” Advincula said in a press briefing at Camp Crame.
“Dahil kapag napabagsak si Presidente Duterte, ang uupo, duly constitutionalized, Her Excellency Leni Robredo, and (she) will appoint from the Senate or the House, to be the vice president. Sonny will be in line to become the vice president,” he added.
Advincula is in the custody of the Philippine National Police (PNP) after he surrendered to the Northern Police District.
Facing media at the PNP headquarters in Camp Crame, Advincula claimed that everything he said in the “Ang Totoong Narcolist” video series was not true. He said it was an effort of LP to tarnish the reputation of administration candidates and increase the ratings of Otso Diretso bets.
He implicated Senators Risa Hontiveros, Leila de Lima, and their staff as those behind Project Sodoma.
“Ang lahat ng nangyari sa ‘Ang Totoong Narcolist’ video episode 1 to video episode 5, ‘yong nirecord ko no’ng nasa isang kumbento ako, lahat ‘yon pawang scripted. Lahat ‘yon pawang kasinungalingan,” Advincula claimed. (Editor: Cenon B. Bibe Jr.)
