President Rodrigo Duterte’s former accuser turned star witness Peter Joemel ‘Bikoy’ Advincula exposes proofs that will support his tale of a seditious plot.
The proofs include phone messages, house keys, and a condominium access card, IDs, utility bills under a different name, and purchase receipts.
In a sworn statement to the Philippine National Police-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG), Advincula mentioned that he saved his phone conversations with supposed co-plotters, which included former senator Antonio Trillanes IV and Fr. Alberto Alejo of Ateneo de Manila.
Advincula revealed that the alleged ouster plot against Duterte is led by Vice President Leni Robredo, 31 members of the opposition, clergy, lawyers, and other private individuals.
The 30-year-old ex-convict also divulged that he still had the keys to Bahay Dagani, a residence in Ateneo de Manila plus a house in Dela Costa Homes in Marikina. Moreover, Advincula mentioned that he was given sanctuary by Jesuit priests and opposition supporters in The Grove Residences in Pasig City.
Fake IDs and safe houses
Other proofs included a fake driver’s license and identification cards from the Social Security System (SSS) and Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC) as a licensed teacher in the name of Pablo Jose Magnu. He claimed that it was issued to him by Trillanes.
Advincula also showed utility bills under his fake name for all the houses where he stayed plus the receipts for all the equipment he bought to make the viral video last April indicting the president to his illicit drug trade.
According to Advincula, the ouster plot dubbed as ‘Project Sodoma’ was conceptualized in August 2018. He claimed that this was the time when Fr. Alejo introduced him to Trillanes and his staff, Jonnell Sangalang.
He added that the plan was to spread disinformation against the President to overthrow him from the seat and in order and install Robredo as president and Trillanes as Vice President before June 30, 2019.
Advincula also claimed that he was promised P500,000 by Trillanes in exchange for making the anti-Duterte videos. Yet, he was firm enough in saying that he did not receive the payment.
Involvement of other personalities
In addition to Advincula’s affidavit, he also added the involvement of other personalities in Project Sodoma.
Advincula classified the personalities based on their roles in the project. The groups include a technical and shadow group, and one production team.
The technical group includes Trillanes, his chief security officer alias Jonell/Jerome, advertising executive Yolly Villanueva Ong, Fr. Villanueva, Alejo, Bro. Armin Luistro, Boom Enriquez, Vicente Romano III, Dan Songco and Advincula himself. They are in-charge of brainstorming strategies for the project.
Meanwhile, the shadow group is composed of Archbishop Socrates Villegas, Bishop Pablo Virgilio David, Bishop Onesto Ongchoco (Honesto Ongtioco), Bishop Teodoro Bacani, Fr. Reyes, Acierto, Hontiveros, Robredo, De Lima through a lawyer, and Otso Diretso senatorial candidates Diokno, Alejano, Hilbay, Macalintal, Gutoc, Aquino, and Tañada. They are responsible for financial, logistical, security and accommodations support.
Lastly, the production team is in-charge of shooting, editing, and uploading the “Ang Totoong Narcolist” videos. It is composed of JM Saracho as the narrator, Enriquez as videographer/editor, an assistant named Monique, Ong and Romano as scriptwriters, and Alejo who supposedly prepared the Jesuit Communications office.
