Aquino said: “Tama po ‘yun, 31 po sila. Napapanood niyo pa rin sa telebisyon. May mga TV hosts pa nga na nakikita natin dito.”

“Mga wholesome pa ang roles nito sa telebisyon and yet itong mga artista na ‘to iba po ang ginagawa ‘pag gabi. Sila pa mismo ang tinutularan ng ating mga kabataan pero kung umorder ng ecstasy, 200 piraso,” he added.

According to Aquino, the watch list is yet to be validated unlike President Rodrigo Duterte’s list where names have already been validated.

“Wala pa po kami balak i-validate ngayon ang mga celebrities, judges and prosecutors. Siguro ho pagkatapos namin i-revalidate ‘yung mga narco politicians, doon mag-umpisa na rin kaming mag-validate ng mga tao na ito,” said Aquino.

Aquino stated that 60,000 personalities are included on the said watch list.
