Caloocan City Vice Mayor Macario “Maca” Asistio III on Friday said he would not tolerate the illicit drug activity of anyone, even of his own brother Luis “Peting” Asistio III.
Reporters chanced upon the vice mayor at the Office of the Ombudsman after he attended a conference in connection with a complaint over billboards put up in Caloocan City.
His brother surrendered to authorities last month and admitted his involvement in the illegal drugs trade.
The vice mayor did not deny his brother’s business of dealing in drugs.
“Alam ko na pusher siya. Hinarap ko na siya (sa pulis) nung mga nakaraang araw … Absolutely ginagawa natin ’yan dahil ’di natin kinukunsinti ang mga ganung activity,” Asistio said.
Asistio said he would let his brother face the consequences of his actions. His brother would also undergo rehabilitation, he added.
“Kung mayroon silang kailangang panagutin sa batas, syempre harapin yung consequences,” Asistio said.
