Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto appeals to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) for “politicizing” and “sensationalizing” the investigation against him.
KAMI learned that Sotto claimed it was the NBI who leaked a copy of the letter for him to the press.
Through a tweet, Sotto expressed his side after NBI Deputy Dir. Ferdinand Lavin claimed that the issue has been “politicized and sensationalized.”
“Acc to NBI Deputy Dir. Lavin, the issue has been ‘politicized & sensationalized.’ I agree. But with all due respect sir, pls stop and think why it reached this point,” Sotto said.
“Side niyo ang nag-leak ng kopya ng sulat sa reporter. Nagpa-receive tao niyo sa opis ko, may kasama pang media,” he added.
In a different tweet, Sotto thanked everyone who supports him. However, he requested the public to refrain from politicizing the issue.
“Thank you all for your overwhelming support. Ngunit wag na po sanang gamitin ang isyu na 'to para sa politika,” he said.
“Pati naman mga opisyales ng nasyonal sinasabing mali ang nbi,” the mayor added.
As previously reported by KAMI, Sotto asked the residents of Pasig City to remain calm regarding the issue. He said that his main focus is to continue working amid the COVID-19 crisis.
Earlier, the NBA reportedly summoned Sotto for supposedly violating the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act after allowing the tricycle drivers to operate during the enhanced community quarantine.
