President Rodrigo Duterte again lashed out at former Iloilo City mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog, saying that his flight means he’s guilty.

Duterte made the statement in his speech during the PDP-Laban rally in Marikina City on Wednesday.

“At kung wala siya kasalanan bakit siya sumibat? Besides, he was already terminated by the Ombudsman,” the President said.

“O kayo, kung ayaw niyong maniwala. Kapag pumunta kayo ng Iloilo, sabi niya mahirap siya. Tingnan mo ang bahay niya. Yan ba ang mahirap? Look at his house. Look at his mansion,” according to him.

In August 2016, Duterte publicly accused Mabilog of protecting drug lords.

The updated drug list, which the Chief Executive made public last March 14, still contained the name of the former politiko.

Mabilog remains in hiding in fear for his life.
