A few days ago, the senator made a statement after the former Davao City vice mayor posted facebook. The unvalidated list included people, groups, and businesses allegedly behind plots against President Rodrigo Duterte. This included her father, former Vice President Jejomar Binay.
She slammed the “misinformation and disinformation” move, which was shared by most pro-Duterte social media pages and websites.
“The information was not accurate nor validated. It’s painfully evident that basic intel is lacking at present. The supposed list in connection with the alleged destabilization plot against the President reflects the sorry state of state intelligence, and the handicap of our intelligence and counterintelligence structures.”
She said that she took pity on the agency that gave the report to the vice mayor.
“Naaawa ako doon sa agency na nagbigay ng intel report kay vice mayor. Sa tingin ko, kailangan silang tulungan para mai-improve naman ang kanilang level of intel capabilities. Kapag kasama na si Jollibee, McDonald’s at mutants sa destabilization plot, it’s a cause for alarm. It means our country is already in grave danger.
“The awkward question: Ano ba talaga, kuya? Diliman ba o dilawan? Kasama nga ba si Jollibee, Ronald, Hetty, at Padawan?”
The list included Vice President Leni Robredo, media personalities, restaurants, and religious personalities.
Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said that former Davao City vice mayor Paolo Duterte‘s list of figures, students, and companies allegedly plotting against his father, President Rodrigo Duterte, is false.
During an interview at the turnover of the Balangiga bells to the Philippines, Lorenzana told the media that he knew that it was fake news the first time he saw the post.
The list that he was referring to was Paolo’s facebook post accusing politicians, media personalities, religious figures, students, and private companies including PLDT and Jollibee, of plotting to oust his father.
“I still maintain [my position] that it is fake news,” Lorenzana added.
Vice President Leni Robredo, on the other hand, viewed the list as a joke.
“Baka nagbibiro lang naman iyon. Parang hindi naman seryoso. Baka joke. Kasi balita ko inalis rin naman siya.
“Napaka-irresponsible. Walang namang basehan. Pangalawa, hindi ko alam kung alam niya kung saan iyon nanggaling, kasi obviously, iyong gumawa noon, hindi man lang nag-aksaya ng panahon para mag-research. Sana nalaman niya na hindi naman ako pumupunta sa mga lugar na iyon, at iyong mga nakalista hindi ko naman kilala.”
In a deleted Facebook post, Presidential son Paolo Duterte shared a list of the personalities and companies that are allegedly planning to oust his father, President Rodrigo Duterte.
The list included politicians like Vice President Leni Robredo, former Vice President Jejomar Binay, Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio, former Chief Justice Hilario Davide, Associate Justice Marvic Leonen, Leila de Lima, Senator Risa Hontiveros, and former senator Francisto Tadtad. Others are known to be allies of former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.
Aside from the politicians, a few religious personalities are also listed like Bishop Broderick Pabilo, Bishop Leo Drona, Bishop Antonio Tobias, Bishop Deogracias Iñiguez, Bishop Julio Xavier Labayen, Bishop Pablo David, and Bishop Arturo Santos.
Even private companies are not exempted because Jollibee Food Corp., Dole Philippines, PLDT, Philsaga Mining Corp., General Tuna Corp., and Sumi Philipines Wiring System are allegedly against the President.
Journalists Maria Ressa, Ellen Tordesillas, and Ed Lingao are also in the list.
Paolo added that the mentioned individuals hold meetings at Maryhill School of Theology in New Manila, Alfredo’s and Annabelle’s Restaurants at Tomas Morato Avenue, and UP Hotels in Quezon City.

After former Senator Bong Revilla has been acquitted from his plunder case, a Davao City judge has issued a warrant of arrest against Senator Antonio Trillanes IV over the criminal case–Libel.
It was filed by President Rodrigo Duterte‘s son and former Davao City vice mayor Paolo Duterte.
Judge Melinda Alconcel Dayanghirang of the Regional Trial Court Branch 54 ordered law enforcement agencies, like the Criminal Detection and Investigation Group (CIDG) to bring Trillanes before her so that he can be “dealt with according to law”.
Although arrested, Trillanes is allowed to post bail. The judge said that he should be presented to her within 10 days upon the release of the warrant arrest copy.
The bail bond is prescribed with a Php24,000 and the senator can deposit it to any office of the or municipal and city treasurers office. He should furnish her with the certificate of deposit.
Trillanes can also post bail in any court upon the approval of the judge who has jurisdiction over the location he would be held in.
Paolo Duterte has accused the senator of “false, baseless, and unfounded” claims regarding him and his brother-in-law Maneses Carpio, demanded money from ride sharing company, Uber.
Carpio has also previously sued Trillanes for libel with damages over his claims that they were involved with the mentioned extortion.
