Controversial cop Lt. Col. Jovie Espenido said he suspects that politicians, whom he refused to identify, are behind his inclusion in the “narcolist” of President Rodrigo Duterte.

He said he believes that those politicians, who may be directly or indirectly involved in the illegal drug trade, are running after him as they see him as a big threat, so they plotted this “character assassination” against him. moremoremore
