NBI’s probe against Mocha Uson a diversionary tactic for Maj. Gen. Debold Sinas’s birthday violation celebration?

People are skeptical of Uson being punished for this since she was never reprimanded for a previous violation where she gathered OFWs in Batangas City, and the fact that she is a Duterte ally.

A probe by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) has been launched against Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) deputy administrator Mocha Uson for allegedly spreading coronavirus-related fake news.

“Yes, she is being investigated by our Cybercrime Division for fake news,” said NBI spokesperson Ferdinand Lavin. “We included her in the investigation [on] posting of PPEs.”

Uson posted photos on Facebook of PPEs allegedly bought by the government but it was later revealed that the PPEs were donated by the SM Foundation.

Lavin said Uson falls under an earlier Department of Justice (DOJ) order to investigate coronavirus-related fake news.

“There was an order of the Secretary of Justice before for the NBI to investigate fake news, we included her in the investigation re posting of PPEs,” said Lavin.

People are skeptical of Uson being punished for this since she was never reprimanded for a previous violation where she gathered OFWs in Batangas City, and the fact that she is a Duterte ally.

It is also surprising why Uson is getting reprimanded only now for spreading fake news when she has been doing it for years already.

Some are saying this is a diversion tactic to make people forget about Major General Debol Sinas’s birthday celebration which violated enhanced community quarantine protocols.

Some people are just happy to hear about it, on top of the news ABS-CBN will be coming back to television soon.

One netizen called out PhilStar for cushioning the impact of Uson’s violation.

People are pointing out that Uson, who is the Queen of Fake News posted the PPE photos last month which raises the question is she only being held accountable now?

This could be a diversionary tactic by the administration to take away attention from Sinas’s major violation.



Uson was also never punished for spreading fake news before. This also comes as a surprise since it happened after ABS-CBN was granted a provisional franchise to operate.
