Suportado ang terorista! Duterte reveals Parojinog helped fund Marawi siege
Slain Ozamiz City Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog Sr. was one of the entities who bankrolled the Maute group so they can attack Marawi City, President Rodrigo Duterte has revealed.
On his fifth visit to Marawi City Thursday (September 21), Duterte gave the media a sneak peek of the matrix containing names of the entities which he said funded the rebellion in Mindanao.
“We have now a good picture of what happened in Marawi about the drugs. This is the matrix,” he said.
Duterte, however, quickly folded the paper before cameras could zoom in on the names.
“You are not allowed to — Because I do not want to compromise our agents…,” he said.
Duterte, however, named Parojinog as one of the Maute group’s financiers.
“They get to — Ito, may pula. That is part of the discovery of the military. Parojinog, the mayor who was killed by the police during a raid,” he said.
Parojinog, who was accused by Duterte of engaging in the illegal drug trade, was killed in a police raid in July.
