A social media user was arrested by the National Bureau of Investigation after he allegedly published a Twitter post where he offered P50-million pesos to anyone who could kill President Rodrigo Duterte.
The name of the suspect is Ronnel Mas and a teacher based in Pangasinan.
According to the report of ‘Dobol B sa News TV’, Ronnel was emotional and apologized to the NBI and to President Duterte.
Based on the statement of Ronnel, the controversial tweet he posted last May 5 is only to seek attention.
Likewise, the father of Ronnel appealed to President Duterte and to the public to give his son a second chance.
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque was asked for a comment about the case of Mas and said that the Palace will leave it to the authorities to decide on the matter.
“Kung merong prima facie case for any case, kasuhan siya,” Roque said. “Mabibigyan naman po siya ng pagkakataon na patunayan na hindi siya nagkasala sa ating hukuman sa takdang panahon,” he added.
