"PATUNAYAN MO MUNA": Dating Pangulo Nonoy Aquino, Binuweltuhan Ang Panawagan Ni Atty. Topacio

Recently, former president Benigno Aquino III slammed Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC) lawyer Ferdinand Topacio for accusing him of plunder over the government's P3.5-billion dengue vaccine purchase.


On December 14, Topacio urged the Senate blue ribbon committee to examine Aquino fro plunder linked to the funds for Dengvaxia were released after Aquino met with Sanofi Pasteur officials.



On his video interview after the hearing posted on News 5 Facebook page,  Aquino considered Topacio's move of hurling accusations without evidence is tantamount to slander.

"Kilala natin lahat kung sino siya. Parang napansin 'nyo after sinabi lahat ng charges, sinabi sa committee, 'Imbestigahan 'nyo 'to.' Parang 'di ba kung mag-aakusa ko, may pruweba ako. Doon, mag-aakusa sila, pinapahanap kila Senator [Richard] Gordon at sa committee on health na kayo maghanap ng ebidensya namin. 'Di kaya may mali do'n?" Aquino told reporters after the hearing.





"Ngayon siyempre, gusto mo sabihin: 'Alam mo, sinisiraan mo reputasyon namin, puwede ka [kasuhan ng] slander, 'di ka covered ng parliamentary immunity, makabitaw ka gano'n na lang....' It is the duty of the accuser to prove the accusation," the former president added.

"Abogado pa naman yung nagsasalita kanina sabi niya. Tapos sasabihin mo kung paano nagawa ang krimen na ito? Kailan? Sino ang involved? etc."

" Sa nagbigay ng pangalan, sinabi niya itong charge, at bahala na ang committe yata dahil sabi niya ' paki-imbestigahan niyo ito ang ginawa nila' o ' imbestigahan niyo para mapatunayan na ginawa nila'."

" Eh, siya nagrereklamo, trabaho niya."



Asked what could be Topacio's motive, Aquino said he would rather not speculate.


"Mahirap naman magsalita. 'Di ako katulad nila – mag-aakusa na walang pruweba,"

Meanwhile, the VACC  is a known supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte and who also filed cases against Duterte's fiercest critic, Senator Leila de Lima, another ally of Aquino.
