Cogie Domingo denied he was buying illegal drvgs when he was caught by operatives from Philippine Drvg Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Region 4-A in Parañaque City.
In a press conference, the actor denied the allegations.
He was with his father who is a lawyer.
According to PDEA drug paraphernalia were found in the actor's car which proved that he use illegal substance.
According to him, “Hindi po sa akin yun. I believe na na-set up lang po ako kaya ganun.”
“Wala po akong alam dun sa mga drvg-sniffing dogs, wala po akong nakitang ganun.”
When asked directly if he is a user,
He replied, “No po. I’m not using drvgs.”
According to him he even had a negative result this year when he underwent a test.
He also admitted he had been a user before.
“Yes, I tried before, and there were those times.
"Pero it was a long time ago, and I’m not using drvgs now."
He is ready to undergo a test to prove he is telling the truth according to him.
According to his father he was shocked as he knew his son does not take drvgs.
“Nalulungkot ako na kailangan kong humarap sa inyo.
"Sa pagkakataon ito na ako’y humaharap, hindi bilang isang abugado kundi sumusuporta ako sa aking anak na alam kong hindi nagdudroga, hindi nagbebenta...
"He is not in any way related to drvgs."
