LOOK: Trillanes To File Libel Cases vs.Thinking Pinoy Blogger RJ Nieto

November 06, 2017


Senator Antonio Trillanes IV will  file a libel case against Thinking Pinoy blogger RJ Nieto and another newspaper columnist for allegedly circulating "fake news."
"Well pini-prapare na ng abodgo ko yung libel case so kakasuhan namin siya ng libel, yung nagkalat sila ng fake news na tinawag daw ako ni President Trump na little narco," Trillanes said during the Kapihan sa Senado.
"Maliwanag na 'yon doon sa US government website on the presidential pronouncements and interviews, wala talaga doon. So kasinungalingan talaga 'yan. It's a propaganda operation na sasalabungin ko 'yan," he added.
Senator Trillanes said he will also file a libel case against  Yen Makabenta, Manila Times columnist
"Ganyan eh, may humabol pa na isang kolumnista eh isasama natin. Humabol pa eh parang sama ako dyan sa kaso," he said.
Senator  Trillanes did not say when he will file the libel cases.


A Philippine Star column titled “A major embarrassment” by veteran journalist Al Pedroche, claimed that Trillanes was called by Trump as “the little narco [who] met with Senator Marco.”

Trump supposedly made the remark to a reporter “while onboard Air Force One.”

Pedroche had apologized for writing the column. In his Pilipino Star Ngayon Column "Fake news inupakan ni Sen. Trillanes," Pedroche admitted that he was responsible for the "Little Narco met with Sen. Marco" article which Trillanes dismissed as fake news.

Trillanes said that he will not include Pedroche in the libel case since he had already apologized.
"Yes, nag-apologize na nga yung columnist na 'yon and we appreciate that, so winelcome ko 'yon pero siya (Nieto) na nag-share non ay ano eh determinado siya kasi, kasi itong mga ito, kagaya ng amo nila na si Mr. Duterte, parang sinisilihan 'pag nag-apologize, parang napakabigat sa kanila na umamin ng pagkakamali," he said.
"Tingnan n'yo si Mr. Duterte hindi 'yan nag-a-apologize kahit sabit sabit na...Ganyan 'yan sila magkakapareahas," he added.
