It is unfortunate that my name has been publicly mentioned in the GMA 7 news report Last April 29, 2016. Of which Senator Antonio Trillanes IV accused Mayor Rodrigo Roa Duterte And his family of possessing illegally amassed properties.
For The Record, I am practicing Pediatric Dentist for seven (7) years and i have established regular clients through private practice based in Cagayan De Oro City. Through my profession, I was able to secure a loan from the Bank Of The Philippines Islands (BPI) to purchase the real estate property in Cagayan de Oro City, mentioned in the reports of GMA 7 and Senator Antonio Trillanes IV.
I’ve been doing private practice as a Dental Medicine Professional and have never been a politician; I Never sought any elected position in the past nor ran for public office. Furthermore, our roots came from Cebu and I’ve yet to establish the degree or any connection whatsoever on how the good Mayor Rodrigo Roa Duterte, And I are directly related.
What do you want to say to GMA News and Sen. Trillanes?
