Ateneo, La Salle deny plotting Duterte’s ouster with LP
Officials from two universities in Metro Manila where meetings were allegedly held to plan the ouster of President Rodrigo Duterte denied their involvement.
“I would like to inform the University community that the Ateneo de Manila University did not convene or organize any of the meetings alleged by Peter Joemel ‘Bikoy’ Advincula to have taken place on campus,” Ateneo president Fr. Jose Ramon Villarin said in a statement.
“The University categorically denies insinuations made this morning that it is party to a plot to overthrow the present government of the Philippines,” Villarin added.
The La Salle Media and Public Relations-Office for Strategic Communications also denied Advincula’s claims and that the university never participated in “subversive” activities.
Advincula, in a statement to police on Thursday, said he met with Vice President Leonor “Leni” Robredo and Sen.
Antonio Trillanes 4th at the Ateneo and La Salle to discuss the videos’ contents.
The “Ang Totoong Narcolist”, Advincula said, sought to divert the attention of the public from the relatively high approval ratings of the administration.
Advincula had admitted that he was “Bikoy”, the hooded figure in the five-part series linking members of Duterte’s family to illegal drugs. NEIL JAYSON N. SERVALLOS
