Slain Tanauan mayor’s daughter debunks claim her father was drug lord
The daughter of slain Tanauan City Mayor Antonio Halili denied the allegation her father was involved in illegal drugs.
The Batangas politiko was gunned down by still unidentified assailants on July 2 during the Monday flag ceremony.
“My father would rather die than become a drug lord,” the daughter said.
“Yung mga tao nagpursige na labanan ang drugs. Hindi pinili ng dad ko na mag-drug lord. Eh sila naman yon, kamag-anak naman nila yon, Angeline added.
She also denied their big house was funded through illegal activities.
“When he decided to run for Mayor, yun na lumabas na iyong tsimis na yon, kasi lumabas sa kalaban,” she said.
