MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon on Thursday suggested that the Senate should reopen its investigation on illegal drugs amid the fresh “very serious” allegations against former Davao vice mayor and presidential son Paolo Duterte.
Drilon made the suggestion after a video linking the former Davao vice mayor to drugs circulated in social media.
The Adobo Chronicles caught up with Drilon soon after waking up from a nap at the Senate Session Hall and asked him what was the intention for his suggestion.
”I was asleep all throughout the first Senate hearing. I didn’t get to hear what Paolo Duterte had to say about illegal drugs. As a hard-working Senator, I just wanted to make sure I have all the first-hand information to be able to make informed decisions.”
