Kris Aquino finally breaks her silence over the alleged involvement of her ex-boyfriend, Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista in illegal drugs. This is after Quezon City Councilor Hero Bautista (Herbert’s younger brother) identified himself as “a victim of the drug menace” during his privilege speech during a city council meeting this Monday, August 15.
That day, Hero Bautista did not admit that he was the QC councilor who failed the drug test. Instead, he noted that he will be “volunteering to embark on a journey; a journey of soul-searching and self-discovery.” The younger Bautista, who will be on “sick leave,” also assured the public that he will be stronger and more mature once he returns.
Nevertheless, Hero emphasized that the QC mayor is not involved with his personal problem, and that his Kuya Herbert is and never was a drug lord coddler. In a short interview with the press after his speech, Harlene Bautista (Herbert and Hero’s sister) said that Hero’s current situation is very painful for the family, requesting everyone to pray for him.
