Bantag accuses Remulla of using him to cover up his son’s arrest


MANILA, Philippines — Bureau of Corrections (Bucor) Chief General Gerald Bantag has accused Department of Justice Secretary Crispin Remulla of reportedly “using” him to cover up his son’s arrest.

The beleaguered and suspended Bucor chief said in a television interview that Remulla kept on dropping bombshells on him to sustain his supposed cover up of his son’s update after he was arrested for drugs.

Instead, he named a certain drug lord German Agojo to be behind the killing of mediaman Percy Lapid. He said Agojo was reportedly the boss of self-confessed gunman Joel Escorial.

“Attention Lapid family, ‘yung pumatay po kay Percy Lapid ay tauhan nitong Agojo … Anong papel niya sa buhay? Tauhan niya daw ‘yung pumatay na si Escorial at Villamor na kaibigan niya, tauhan nitong si Agojo. Nakikita ninyo ba ang koneksyon? Ito ba pag-uutusan ko ba ito?” the Bucor chief told a local TV station in Davao.

Bantag, however, did not give any details why Agojo allegedly ordered the killing of the radioman  

“Bakit ko papatayin ‘yung tao, dahil lang doon sa walang kuwentang hindi naman sa akin,” he said, referring to an exposé of Lapid involving him and the vehicles and properties he allegedly own.
