Malacañang on Wednesday accused the Liberal Party, the Magdalo party-list group, certain media outfits, and some personalities of conniving to oust him.


During a Palace briefing, presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo showed several matrices linking groups and individuals to an ouster plot against the President.

In his speech, the President said the information in the matrices were from members of the foreign intelligence community.

The President also dismissed as “black propaganda” the videos linking his immediate family to the illegal drug trade.

A series of videos titled “Ang Totoong Narcolist” recently circulated online, with a hooded narrator named “Bikoy,” accusing the President’s immediate family memebers of being involved in illegal drugs.

“That’s black propaganda against my son,” he said in Filipino, referring to former Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte.

The Bikoy videos, he said, was a production of Magdalo.

Magdalo is the group of rebel soldiers who railed about anomalies in the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP).


Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV, one of Duterte’s staunchest critics, is part of Magdalo.
