Mar Roxas denies links to 'drug generals',also called Roxas Generals
Former DILG Sec. Mar Roxas on Wednesday denied his linking to the police Generals tagged by President Duterte as protectors of the illegal drug trade.
According to Roxas statement, he denied his ties with these Generals. The generals were called "Roxas Generals" claimed by some online sites and traditional media outlets.
Roxas denied such allegations and said it is a black propaganda and those generals didn't help him in the last election campaign.
"Nakarating po sa aking atensiyon na may ilang online site at traditional media outlet na nagbabansag sa ilang heneral bilang ‘Roxas Generals.’ Kahit wala namang malinaw na batayan, pinalalabas na nangampanya sila para sa akin noong nakaraang eleksiyon,” Roxas said.
"Lilinawin ko po: Walang Roxas Generals. Ang mga pinangalanang heneral ay hindi naging bahagi ng aking kampanya. Kung nakipag-ugnayan man ako sa kanila, ito ay bilang bahagi ng pagtupad ko sa aking tungkulin noong kalihim ako sa DILG (Department of Interior and Local Government),” he added.
He stated that his dealings with them in the past was part of his job as DILG secretary and were not part of his campaign.
