Re: Naga as shabu den, Harry forgets "allegata et probata"

Recently, Harry Roque has issued a statement supporting Duterte's comments that Naga is a "hotbed of shabu." He said that Naga officials should prove that the President is wrong.

NEWS BY INQ: There was no need for President Rodrigo Duterte to show proof to the public that the home province of Vice President Leni Robredo was a breeding ground for crystal meth, MalacaƱang said on Monday. Instead, if Naga City officials truly believe that Duterte’s remark was false, the Palace said that they should prove him otherwise.
