MANILA, Philippines–The Philippine National Police-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG) on Thursday filed Sedition and other complaints against Vice President Leni Robredo and 35 other individuals, including incumbent and former senators and priests after they were tagged in the release of the “Ang Totoong Narcolist” videos.

“I have the honor to submit herewith and requesting appropriate action…the pertinent records of investigation relative to the criminal complaint for Sedition, inciting to Sedition, Cyber Liber, Libel, Estafa, Harboring a Criminal and Obstruction of Justice,” read the PNP-CIDG’s letter-complaint submitted to the Department of Justice (DOJ).

‘Bikoy’ tales

Advincula appeared at the IBP office last May and admitted that he is the hooded narrator in the video.

The six-part video series, which was uploaded in various social media platforms linked the family of President Rodrigo Duterte and his close allies to the illegal drugs trade.

Advincula eventually recanted his testimony and said the video was part of a certain “Project Sodoma,” aimed at discrediting Duterte and destabilize the government.

The “Project”, supposedly planned as early as August 2018, likewise sought to allegedly discredit midterm election candidates of the administration-backed Hugpong ng Pagbabago.
