The filing by Mr. Edgar Matobato of criminal and administrative charges against me and several others, including my father, President Rodrigo Duterte, is a proof that the Philippines is a democracy.
Any person should not be precluded from filing complaints against anyone if he or she feels that his or her rights have been violated.
I respect that.
However, let me reiterate my previous statement that the allegations made by Mr. Matobato against me are nothing but a product of the imagination of a madman.
A closer look at what was filed at the Ombudsman will easily allow us to see the only thing consistent in the Matobato tales — lies.
What he filed at the Ombudsman was just a piece of garbage.
