MANILA, Philippines— Denying the allegations against him, opposition Senator Antonio Trillanes IV is considering filing appropriate charges against Peter Joemel Advincula.

“I deny the allegations made by this Bikoy character. This could be another ploy of the administration to harass the opposition,” Trillanes said in a statement on Thursday.


“For now, I will be consulting with my lawyers so that we could also file the appropriate charges against him,” he added.

Advincula, who claims to be “Bikoy” in the “Ang Totoong Narcolist” videos, tagged the Liberal Party (LP), Trillanes, and other opposition members behind him and the videos.

In the videos, ‘BIkoy” linked President Rodrigo Duterte’s relatives and allies into the illegal drug trade.

But Advincula recanted his statements on Thursday and accused opposition members of behind the videos and for being in an alleged plot to oust Duterte.

The LP, through its vice chair, Senate Minority Leader  Franklin Drilon,  also denied  Advincula’s allegations. (Editor: Mike U. Frialde)
