MANILA, Philippines — Actress Aiko Melendez has filed a libel case against Zambales Vice Governor Angel Magsaysay-Cheng for tagging her on the illegal drug trade. 

“Maraming pagkakataon pinalampas ko na ang paninira mo sa akin. But not this one. Para isangkot mo ako sa droga! This is too much. I filed a libel case against Angel Magsaysay-Cheng,” Melendez wrote Tuesday in a Facebook post.

The actress filed the complaint after Cheng supposedly posted a video on Facebook referring to Melendez as mistress of Subic Mayor Jay Khonghun and tagging her to the illegal drug trade. 

Kung kaya mo gawin sa akin to? Paano pa kaya ung ordinaryong tao ng zambales??? Grabe na ang pang aapi mo sa amin. Pati ako kasama na pala..

Khonghun is running against Cheng for the Zambales vice governor post in the upcoming elections.

“Wala ka na awa basta nalang makasira ka ng tao kahit wala ka ebidensya. Basta makasakit ka na lang ng kapwa mo,” Melendez said. 

“Para paikutin mo sa Zambales ang puting van na me picture ko na sangkot sa droga ang nagtulak sa akin para ipaglaban ang karapatan ko bilang tao,” she added. 

Melendez also attached a copy of her drug test report showing she is negative from methamphetamine and tetrahydrocannabinol. 

Attached is my latest drug test result. Sinabihan na kita na di kita sasabayan sa kabastusan ng diskarte. Dadaanin ko to sa legal na pamamaraan,” Melendez said.

Meanwhile, Khonghun was also among the politicians included in President Rodrigo Duterte’s narcolist, but denied that he is in any way connected to the illegal drug trade. /cbb
