Bikoy profile: A seminarian turned convicted illegal recruiter — PNP
MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine National Police (PNP) is building up its information on Peter Joemel Advincula who claims himself as “Bikoy”, the man in the viral video linking President Rodrigo Duterte to illegal drugs trade.

“Sinasabi niya (na) siya si Bikoy, but that has to be validated also and confirmed kung talagang siya si Bikoy dahil nagsalita siya with mask (He claims to be Bikoy, but that has to be validated also and has to be confirmed because he is speaking behind a mask),” noted PNP Chief Police General Oscar Albayalde.

Advincula is currently under profiling by the PNP.

Based on initial data by the PNP, Advincula had been jailed at the New Bilibid Prison in Muntinlupa City for cases of illegal recruitment in his hometown in Bicol.

“Lumalabas na itong tao na ito (It shows that this man), he was convicted for large scale illegal recruitment and he was sentenced to serve (a) term of 6 years. It was shortened because of good behavior,” Albayalde said.

It was also revealed that Advincula has a pending case of estafa at the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI).

“Ibig sabihin kapag nagkaroon ka na ng illegal recruitment and sa dami mo nang naloko, baka tunay na magaling siyang magsalita (It means, his involvement in illegal recruitment and the number of victims he has conned show that he is skilled at telling stories). Also, we found out that he was a former seminarian. Baka ginagamit niya rin yun para maloko niya yung mga tao(Maybe he uses it to deceive people),” explained Albayalde.

If investigations confirm that he is Bikoy, he will face charges of cyber libel, according to the PNP Chief.

Nevertheless, General Albayalde said the PNP is ready to provide Advincula with police protection should there be threats to life.

“We will assess kung talagang kailangan niya ng security or not kasi baka imagination din niya na his life is in danger (We will assess if he really needs security or not because he may just be imagining that his life is in danger),” the PNP Chief concluded. – (with details from Rey Pelayo) Marje Pelayo
