The City Council of Davao on Tuesday, March 22, approved a resolution declaring Vice Presidential bet Walden Bello a persona non-grata.
During the “Comelec Pilipinas Debate, Vice Presidential Candidates” edition on March 20 in a nationwide live telecast, Bello called the city a trading hub for illegal drugs allegedly controlled by some members of the Duterte family.
Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP), chaired by Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, issued a statement on Monday, March 21, branding Bello a narco-politician for concealing information about illegal drugs in the city from the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA).
The HNP has requested an investigation into Bello’s knowledge and involvement in the illegal drug trade in Davao City.
