Drilon demands apology from Imee for fake news on P100M bribe



Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon on Tuesday mentioned Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos owed the Liberal Party a public apology after she falsely accused the celebration of bribing congressmen with P100 million to ensure she was pinned down for the P66.5 million tobacco fund rip-off in her province.

“We demand an apology from Imee Marcos,” Drilon mentioned.
The LP celebration chair made the demand after Marcos, who lastly attended the House committee investigating her alleged rip-off, retracted her declare that “yellow forces” have been accountable for a P100 million slush fund in Congress.

Drilon mentioned Marcos shouldn’t solely apologize to the congressmen whom she insinuated as alleged recipients of the bribe.

Marcos was pressured to confess that her allegation was unfaithful through the House listening to after she was threatened with contempt by House Majority Leader Rodolfo Farinas for refusing to call the source of her P100 million bribe declare.

Imee Marcos was forced to admit that she only made up her claim that “yellow forces” dangled a P100 million fund to House members dogging her on her alleged misuse of tobacco fundsvworth P66.5 milllion.

“I apologize and withdraw the statement, my mere suspicion and given that the source is uncertain, I withdraw the accusation on the integrity and honor of the House that P100 million circulated,” said Marcos

“Hindo po totoo yun at ako po ay nagpapaumnahin kung nasakatan po ang ibang miyembro ng Kongreso,” she added.

“Once again I apologize for whichever offensive way it was reflected in the media, however, I have my source and I will make an effort to get to the bottom of that story,”
