Revilla denies being apprehended on Edsa bus lane
MANILA, Philippines — Senator Bong Revilla on Wednesday said there’s no truth to reports circulating that he was apprehended using the Edsa carousel busway.
Revilla, in a statement, branded the report as “malicious.”
“My daily commute is from the south to the Senate and there is no possibility I will be on Edsa in Mandaluyong. When attending official functions in the north, I take the Skyway from and back to the south,” Revilla explained.
The senator said he will seek an explanation from the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) as to why his name is being “dragged and smeared.”
“If it’s true that they apprehended someone using my name, they should have done their job and ticketed the violator,” Revilla pointed out in Filipino.
INQUIRER.net has sought MMDA’s comment on the matter, but it has yet to respond as of press time.
