In an interview over ABS-CBN News Channel’s “Early Edition” on Monday, Martin Bautista said:

Sinabi ko sa kapatid ko yon, alam mo corruption masama yan. So I told him, alam mo kung totoo 'to magpakamatay ka. Sabi nya wala eh and I believe my brother.

He is that confident that he would not misdeclare (his SALN). And that’s why I am here, to back him up.

Refering to Patricia's documents which according to her were proof of Andy's unexplained wealth, Martin added:
Hindi natin alam if these were fabrications. Hindi natin alam which one is genuine [or] which one is fake.

Let Secretary Aguirre determine. Let the DOJ determine. Let the BIR determine. Ang hinihiling lang complete unadulterated transparency. Wala kaming tinatago walang ninakaw ang kapatid ko.
