Cesar Montano believes that the recent arrests involving celebrities are only the beginning of a longer list.
Of late, stars like Mark Anthony Fernandez, Sabrina M, and Krista Miller were arrested following the continuous drug campaign of President Rodrigo Duterte.
Krista was formerly linked to Cesar and was said to be the third party that caused the split of the action star with his former wife Sunshine Cruz.
Sunshine, when asked for a comment on the issue, said “Hindi po ako natatawa o matutuwa sa misfortune ng iba.”
Cesar for his part in an exclusive interview with Push.com.ph said, “I cannot comment on that. Ganon talaga eh, marami pa ‘yan.”
He encouraged the other celebrities to just surrender in light of the growing drug campaign.
“Dapat sumuko na sila ng maaga. Kasi hindi naman na-late ng advise ang ating president,” he said. “Sabi nila sumuko na kayo. Ngayon nasa kanila na ‘yun kung matigas ang ulo nila. Nasa kanila na ‘yun kung magmamatapang sila. Nasa kanila na ‘yun kung mahihiya sila.”
The actor-director pointed out that shame should be the last thing that they should think about.
“Dapat ‘wag silang mahiya kasi baka ma-save pa ang embarrassment na mangyayari sa inyo sa future if you’re going to surrender early,” he said.
Since he claimed to have voted for the president, Cesar said he would abide by the rules that would be established by his governance. Several quarters are pushing for the continuous random drug testing in showbiz industry.
“I will abide kung ano ‘yan. I will respect it kasi pinili ko na siya tsaka nakakakapit ako sa tiwala ko sakanya because I believe in him and his vision and leadership,” he said.
What does he think of the supposed celebrity drug list?
“Well, we’re living in the same country and our leaders, like our president nakikita natin na parehas ang kanyang treatment sa lahat… I trusted him at hanggang ngayon, dahil siya ang nakita kong leader, dapat pagkatiwalaan ko siya. Kung anong desisyon niya, kung ano ang gagawin niya because he knows what he’s doing,” he ended.
