After Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales decided to dismiss Quezon City 3rd District Councilor Roderick Paulate and others from the public office, netizens asked him to defend himself in the media.
On his Instagram, he said that he was saddened about how the media reported the news about him.
“Nakakalungkot nga kasi minsan oa ang news. Hindi naman ito malaki, sobrang pinalalaki lang ng mga nasa likod nito ang kasinungalingan ito. Sad to say, maraming humusga na kahit hindi nila naiintindihan ang nangyayari sa akin. Tinaon nila sa election period na. Basta, truth will prevail. God is just! He knows the truth,” he answered.
