Opposition plotted to topple Duterte, install Robredo as Pres - Sabio

The spilling of the beans so to speak continues, erstwhile compatriot of the opposition Atty. Jude Sabio is telling all.

According to Sabio, the opposition had plotted to topple President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and make Vice President Maria Leonor “leni” Robredo take his place as the head of state.

This revelation of Sabio, bolsters the Philippine National Police (PNP)’s inciting to sedition charges against opposition personalities over the “Ang Totoong Narcolist” videos of Peter Joemel Advincula alias “Bikoy,” which the Department of Justice (DOJ) is set to resolve this month.

Atty. Sabio withdrew and recanted the  mass murder complaint he filed as against President Duterte before the International Criminal Court (ICC).

He recalled that former senator and one of the fiercest critic of the President Antonio Trillanes IV tried to tap him as counsel of Advincula in April last year despite his unpaid legal services for Edgar Matobato, the confessed hitman who linked Duterte to killings by the Davao death squad (DDS) when he was still the city’s mayor.
“They had the gall and temerity to recruit me as lawyer for alias Bikoy in order to achieve their political agenda, which is to undermine and topple President Duterte so that Vice President (Leni) Robredo would become president,” he said

Sabio refused to be the lawyer for Advincula because the latter did not even pass the opposition’s vetting process, simply put the truth of his claims cannot be established.

When the former senator and the opposition pursued Advincula’s claim despite lack of proof, only then Sabio realized that he was taking part in a grand scheme of plotting against President Duterte and began to question the statements of Matobato and Arturo Lascañas.

“When I filed that communication, I relied on the testimony of Matobato and Lascañas who demonstrate that there was a system being conducted in Davao that was expanded later on when President Duterte became president but with what happened in the Bikoy scandal, I began to question. I began to raise serious doubts about the contents of that communication,” he recalled.

“Considering that I went to the ICC for justice, I do not want my communication to be used further by them for their political agenda,” Sabio stressed.
Sabio said he realized that there is big chance the President is innocent of the charges.
“Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus (Falsity in one, falsity in all). Based on the pattern, it is very likely also that there is serious doubt about the testimony of Matobato and Lascañas,” he said.

“In my view, the President is not guilty, in line with what happened in the Bikoy incident,” he stressed.
Sabio namedropped, Trillanes and detained senator Leila De Lima were behind  the allegations against the President.
