Pres. Marcos says Pastor Quiboloy should attend Congress hearing

President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr said that Kingdom of Jesus Christ (KOJC) leader Apollo Quiboloy should use the hearings in Congress to explain himself from the allegations against him.

In an interview with reporters this Wednesday with Marcos before he traveled to Canberra, Australia, for an official visit, the president said that Quiboloy needed to reveal his “side of the story.”


“He has an opportunity in the hearings both in the House and in the Senate to say his side of the story. Kaya po sinasabi niya, hindi totoo lahat ‘yan, hindi totoo, walang nangyaring ganiyan, ‘di sabihin niya (sa hearing),” said Marcos.

Marcos added that it will be more difficult for Quiboloy if Congress “contempts” him.

”That’s why my advice for him is to just face the questioning in the House and in the Senate. Marinig natin ang kaniyang side para malaman natin kung ano ba talagang nangyayari dito,” Marcos added.


Both the Senate and the House of Representatives have issued separate subpoenas against Quiboloy to compel him to attend hearings, which he has failed to do several times.

In earlier statements, Quiboloy said he would not attend the hearings but was ready to face the charges if brought to court.

The Senate is investigating Quiboloy’s alleged abuse of former KOJC members. In contrast, the franchise of Swara Sug Media Corporation, which operates Sonshine Media Network International, KOJC’s broadcast media arm, is being investigated in the Chamber.


Meanwhile, Marcos also refuted Quiboloy’s allegation that he and his wife, First Lady Louise ”Liza” Araneta-Marcos, conspired with the US government to “eliminate” the religious leader who is also wanted in America because of what he is facing those cases.

”Walang may gustong mag-assassinate sa kaniya. Bakit siya i-assassinate? Why would anyone want him dead?” said Marcos.

In an audio recording posted on Facebook this Wednesday, Quiboloy said that someone gave him information that American agencies — such as the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) — were allegedly operating to eliminate him instead of extradition.

“Ayaw na raw po nila ng extradition treaty. Ang kanila pong gagawin ng CIA, FBI, ng US Embassy, at State Department, kasabwat ng ating gobyerno ng Pangulong Marcos at ng First Lady at kung sino pa man ang nasa gobyerno, ako ay rendition ang kanilang gagawin,” said Quiboloy.
