Senator Antonio Trillanes IV expressed confidence Thursday that he would be able to shatter the accusations hurled by Peter Joemel Advincula or Bikoy, the self-confessed narrator in the “Ang Totoong Narcolist” video series, even as he warned authorities against the latter.

“Sa akin ito lang if they go down that road, itong NBI (National Bureau of Investigation), DOJ (Department of Justice), PNP (Philippine National Police) whoever, masusunog at masusunog sila diyan kasi alam na alam ko at ng mga pari kung ano ang katotohanan dito,” Trillanes said during Kapihan sa Senado.

He said charges should be filed in court and if Advincula has evidence, he could also produce documents to debunk it.

“In the end kung may kaso talaga sila e di i-file nila, dun ko na lang bubutasin. Hanggang ngayon nga wala pa akong affidavit, sa media pinapadaan, tinitignan kung paano magrereact. I'm not about to fall into that trap. Ilabas n’yo yan, kapag final na isampa n’yo sa korte, dun ko bubutasin yan,” he said.

“Because kung nakakalimutan ni Bikoy, kung merong siyang ebidensiya, e meron din kaming ebidensiya. Ito ‘yung tutuo. Hindi pwede ‘yung adjustable evidence,” he added.

He said authorities should be wary because Advincula has been making up accusations and offering it to whoever could give him what he wants.

“Confident na confident ako kasi I’ve seen this happen before, ‘yung mga ganyang pathological liars hindi ‘yan tumatagal…That guy is living in his own fantasy, kung ano man ang gusto niyang i-live out na fantasy pero just like Ador Mawanay, bibitawan at bibitawan nila ‘yan kasi makikita nila ‘yan na pinaglololoko sila,” he said.

Trillanes described Advincula’s accusation as stupid and has no basis.

“Imagine-in mo ito ang matinding kabobohan dito, ouster plot daw na pinaplano ko along with priests and the opposition and mga bishops na ang paraan ay video. Babagsak daw dahil sa video tapos ang main actor e si Bikoy. Hindi ba matinding kabobohan ‘yun,” he said.

“Having gone through two failed exercises, palagay ko naman alam ko what should work and what would not,” he added, referring the coup plots he participated in.

In the video series, Bikoy accused President Duterte’s family members and allies of alleged involvement in illegal drug operations.

In early May, Advincula surfaced at the Integrated Bar of the Philippines and reiterated his allegations.

He surrendered to police weeks later and changed his tune, claiming it was Trillanes, with the help of the Liberal Party, who hired him to make the accusation against Duterte’s kins and allies.

Trillanes admitted that priests brought Advincula to him but the latter did not pass their vetting process. —LDF, GMA News
