Paredes hits Duterte another factual blow. This time on “Colombia ex-Pres an idiot” issue.
The APO Hiking Society musical band member strikes anew against President Duterte.
Using his Twitter account, Jim Paredes twitted yet another controversial blow against the reaction of President Rodrigo Duterte to the Colombian former leader.
Before you call the Colombian President an idiot, remember: he caught the biggest drug lord Pablo Escobar. You let Peter Lim escape

Many criticize Pres. Duterte on Peter Lim’s issue. Lim was confirmed by no other than the chief of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), Director General Isidro Lapeña, as the Cebu’s businessman and drug lord who also visited Duterte. But instead of apprehending Lim, Duterte only advised Lim to go to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to clear his name. Lim is still free, not in jail nor being killed, despite Duterte’s public speeches of “I will kill you” against drug lords.
Former president of Colombia, Cesar Gaviria, wrote an article in New York Times reminding Philippine President Duterte not to repeat Gaviria’s mistakes in the then Colombia’s war on drugs.
He reminded Pres. Duterte that using arms and might against petty criminals ang drug addicts will not solve the problem, on the contrary it will create more problems.
President Duterte’s reaction is expected to be arrogant and tactless. He called the former Colombian president as “idiot”.
So what do you think of Paredes’ tweet?
