In the morning of September 28, 2017, PDI reported that the Ombudsman will probe Duterte’s wealth based on alleged documents and information attached to the Trillanes complaint.
The news has been met with celebration among the supporters of the Duterte opposition in social media including the Facebook page, Silent No More, who posted a mocking Facebook update at exactly 5:57 PM today and read:
Dear Fellow Filipinos,
“Mahirap lang kami. Simpleng tao lang kami.”
Audition pala ito sa PBB?!
However, the joyous mood in the opposition camp proved to be premature if the official statement from AMLC is an indication.
News5’s caption while sharing the AMLC statement says it all in one sentence.
AMLC, itinangging may ibinigay na kopya ng ulat sa Ombudsman kaugnay ng sinasabing bank accounts ni Pres. Duterte
The statement from AMLC denying releasing any documents or information to Trillanes has been met with jubilation from the Duterte supporters on social media by mocking at Trillanes.
Gogo Sanchez Gallarde wrote: “Wahahaha, anyari,,,, paano yan? Nag celebrates na kampo no Trillanes,,, Anu ba yan mga beshhh Anu ba talaga ang totoo???”
Benj Esguerra remarked: “FAKE NEWS na naman ang pinakalat ni Trililing at Alejano….kasuhan na kasi mga yan.”
Erick Amodia said: “Conspiracy between trililing and the ombudman’s yellowtards personnel… anu kau ngaun??? Nganga.”
Ram Cortez De Leon made fun at Ombudsman. “Paano ang source ng ombudsman isang asong tsismoso!!!hahaha”
Meanwhile, Eddie Macapulay slammed the mainstream media for being Trillanes’ mouthpiece. “Kagat agad ang mga mainstream media!.may interview pa kay Trilianes.. bwiset!.ilan nlang na mga pahayagan ang matino at credible ngayon..”
Netizen Jason Andanar said the case should now be automatically dismissed. “Automatic DISMISS yang kaso. Hindi pala galing AMLC ang ebidensya hahaha..
Dapat din kasohan ang ombudsman, bakit tinanggap nila ang ebidensya na HINDI VERIFIED..
tsk tsk tsk”
