Recently, Peter Joemel Advincula, who claimed to be “Bikoy,” said he had a meeting with Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates Villegas and other personalities in separate occasions at different universities.

On the day and time, December 12, 2018 in the evening, that I allegedly met with some plotters to overthrow the government, I was in the parish church of Orani in Bataan to deliver the homily at the first Mass of a friend newly ordained priest,” he said.

As a mortal being like the rest of us, I have no capacity to be in two places at the same time.

I cannot and will never lend a hand to use illegal or violent means for social change. Such will weaken our democratic foundations. This is contrary to my Christian conscience,” he added.

Last Tuesday, Advincula claimed meeting with Villegas, a certain Father Robert, Caloocan Bishop Pablo Virgilio David, and former Education Secretary Armin Luistro in separate sessions at universities.
