Panelo: PRRD lied re maid-molesting story

President Rodrigo Duterte's story of him touching a maid's private parts was nothing but a tall tale, claimed Malacañang on Thursday, January 3, after facing intense backlash.

"Exact words of the President when he told me, 'That's a concocted story to dramatize the hypocrisy of the person I was referring to,'" said Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo during a Palace news briefing.

Duterte had supposedly intended for the story to highlight the abuses of priests in his hometown of Davao City, sometimes perpetrated during the confession of young male students.

As far as Panelo is concerned, Duterte was "initiating discourse."
