To refresh your memory, below is the excerpt of WAC’s post discussing the complicity of Jesse Robredo in the jueteng gambling in Naga City.
“Nothing can be farther from the truth. While giving the public the illusion that he was against jueteng, Jesse tolerated the Mercados since they were close friends, and had a political debt to pay since Sonny supported Jesse’s mayorsalty bid against Roco in 1988. “
Moving forward, below is the statement of Luis Ortega, former councilor of Naga City who talked to TV News5 via phone patch.
“Sila ang operator eh. Pa-kwan-kwan lang yan eh, sa huli-huli. Pagkatapos ay walan namang mangyayari. Naku diyan yan eh yumayaman eh. Mga ganyan-ganyan na yan eh. Percent-percent na ‘yan na ‘yan ang alam ko eh.”
Ortega also dismissed the image the Robredo’s have portrayed in the public that they are not well-off.
“Super yaman po yan. Yun sa mga urban poor nya, naku ang daming delihensya. Binibili sa city of Naga ng 150 yan sa may-ari, pababayaran ng 250. On the record yan.”
