Roxas on drug killings: I won’t say ‘I told you so’


If only the people had listened to former Senator Mar Roxas, Filipinos would have been saved from killings related to illegal drugs.

Responding to reporters when asked about his thoughts on drug killings under the present administration, Roxas said he would not blame the people for electing a leader who has been tainted with allegations of extrajudicial killings.

“Wala namang tuwa ng ‘I told you so’ dahil mga buhay ito,” he said.

He said he had done his part by warning the electorate during the 2016 elections but most people did not listen.

“Hindi ko ikinatutuwa na nangyayari ‘yan sa atin ngayon at sa totoo lang ay dapat nga na ipagtanggol natin itong mga namatay na ito,” he added.

Roxas was among the Liberal Party members who attended a mass at UP on Thursday to commemorate the declaration of martial law.

The LP gathering was led by its chair Leni Robredo and former President Benigno Aquino.
