Duterte to US, Canada: Help us catch Mabilog

MANILA, Philippines — President Duterte is calling on the United States and Canada to help the Philippines track down Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog, who is in the list of politicians allegedly involved in illegal drug operations in the country. In a televised speech last Thursday in Davao City, Duterte asked the US embassy to explain why Mabilog managed to slip into the US even if he had been tagged in alleged illegal activities. The Palace had furnished US Ambassador Sung Kim information about Mabilog’s alleged illegal drug activities, the President said. Or if he’s not in America, I’m sorry but maybe in Canada,” Duterte added. At the height of the Chief Executive’s exposés against Mabilog, the former city mayor fled to Japan supposedly to attend an international conference in 2017.
