Senate President Tito Sotto in a press conference confirmed that Peter Joemel ‘Bikoy’ Advincula is the same person who contacted his office in 2016, claiming that he knew some information about the links of former President Noynoy Aquino and former Vice President Jejomar Binay in illegal businesses.
According to him, Advincula tried to reach him by talking to his chief political affairs, Hutch Altavas and might become a big issue if he helped ‘Bikoy’ to expose his accusations against the former President in 2016.
“It was really a big bombshell during that time kung pinatulan ko,” Sotto said.
However, the Senate President said that the story presented by ‘Bikoy’ to him was unbelievable.
He also gave a hint that Bikoy only changed the cast of his stories after Sotto mentioned the underground safe house in Misibis Bay, the same place Advincula mentioned in the “Ang Totoong Narco-list” video which according to him, are the hideout of the Dutertes.
“Like for example, I cannot imagine President Noynoy Aquino going to that underground safe house in Misibis with Ochoa, De Lima and exchanging money,” he said.
“I can’t imagine that happening…Napakahirap paniwalaan ang kwento nito,” he added.
The Senate President also said that the people who still believed in Bikoy despite telling unbelievable stories are embarrassing.
“Definitely the person is not credible at all, yung mga nagbibigay ng statements na sabi credible daw ito, o sounds credible, nakakahiya,” he said.
Bikoy in 2012 was considered as a Most Wanted in Naga City after victimizing more than 200 people in illegal recruiting.
In 2018 it was also reported that Bikoy used a company’s name to organize a pageant without consent and didn’t pay the people who participated in the said event.
