Lacson backs Mar, says Roxas will be ‘last person standing’ | ABS-CBN News

“Kung ito Gunfight at the OK Corral, I would see him as the last person standing. Why? Siya lang ‘yung walang corruption issue, and I can personally vouch for his integrity. Second, siya lang ‘yung walang disqualification case na hinaharap. Third, siya lang ‘yung walang health issue,” he added.”We don’t know what awaits Senator Poe kasi meron siyang disqualification case or DQ case. Vice-President [Jejomar] Binay may mga issues. Of course, Senator Miriam [Santiago] – I really don’t know. I can only wish her good luck and good health.”The former senator also said Roxas appeared as a witness in the counter-affidavit he filed before the Department of Justice in the Dacer-Corbito case.Roxas backed Lacson’s statement that they were together at the United Nations to attend an event in 2009, debunking Cesar Mancao’s claim that he got instructions from Lacson on the Dacer-Corbito case.”I told him, ‘Senator Mar, baka naman pwedeng makapag-witness ka sa aking counter-affidavit na i-fa-file kasi iniipit talaga ako. Ayaw na magpa-postpone.’ Ayaw magpa-ectend, gusto i-file na yung case…After he checked, sabi niya: ‘Paano ba ito? Honeymoon ko eh.’ Parang katatapos lang ng kasal niya. Parang, I remember, ikakasal pa lang siya kay Korina. Sabi niya, ‘Kailangan ko bang pumunta sa DOJ?’ Sabi ko: ‘Kailangan daw e. Kailangan personal na i-a-affirm mo yung affidavit mo.’ And he did. Imagine, for an all, for a friend to do that favor para sa iyo – I won’t forget that,” Lacson said.
