In a prepared statement the Archbishop said ;

“On the day and time, December 12, 2018 in the evening, that I allegedly met with some plotters to overthrow the government, I was in the parish church of Orani in Bataan to deliver the homily at the first Mass of a friend newly ordained priest,” he said.
“As a mortal being like the rest of us, I have no capacity to be in two places at the same time.”
In a sworn affidavit submitted by Advincula to the Philippine National Police, he claims that Villegas was present at the meeting on December 12 last year at the Jesuit Residence at the Ateneo de Manila University.

Villegas further said that he cannot participate in an illegal or violent scheme to effect social change.

“I cannot and will never lend a hand to use illegal or violent means for social change. Such will weaken our democratic foundations. This is contrary to my Christian conscience,” he added.
