DAVAO CITY - Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio on Saturday said her husband Manases Carpio cannot forgive Peter Joemel Advincula alias Bikoy for linking him to the drug trade.

In a series of videos titled "Ang Totoong Narco-list," Bikoy claimed drug money was funneled into the bank accounts of Duterte-Carpio's husband, her brother Paolo, and Senator-elect Christopher "Bong" Go.

Last Thursday, Advincula said the videos were "orchestrated lies" concocted by Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV and the opposition and that he was promised 500,000 pesos to produce the videos.

He apologized to the Dutertes for creating the videos.

Duterte-Carpio said her husband will file charges against Advincula because he needs to protect their children.

"I did not intend to file cases pero nagkausap kami ng asawa ko at sabi niya hindi daw niya kayang magpatawad because he needs to protect his children," she said.

"Because he felt na ang pagbastos sa kaniya is mareflect sa mga anak niya kasi nakakaintindi na mga anak namin kasi nanonood na rin sila ng TV at news."

When asked if Paolo and Veronica "Kitty" Duterte will do the same, she said she has not talked to them yet.

Duterte-Carpio earlier said Bikoy is "a scam" created by those who oppose the Duterte administration.
