In March 2019, President Rodrigo Duterte named Perez as one of the narco-politicians in the country. But the town mayor denied the accusation and said the release of the list was "unfair and politically motivated."

"Yan ay politically motivated kasi 2017 pa nag-start yang rumor na yan na ako ay kasama sa drugs so inignore ko lang yan kasi alam ko na hindi totoo yan," Perez said in 2019 interview.
