Malacañang on Friday implied that Senator Leila de Lima might be spreading misinformation to trigger discord and division among the officials of the Duterte administration.
At a news briefing, Presidential Communications Office Assistant Secretary Marie Banaag said this after De Lima accused Special Assistant to the President Secretary Christopher "Bong" Go that he was the one who called Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Ronald dela Rosa to reinstate Supt. Marvin Marcos.
"Doon sa punto ni Secretary De Lima, hindi natin siya pwedeng sabihan kung anong pwede niyang isipin at kung anong pwede niyang, isipin at sabihin. Kaya kung sa kanyang banda po, kay Senator De Lima, kung gusto niyang sabihin ‘yun, walang problema po sa atin kasi anytime po they can, they can feed any misinformation in order to, para magkagulo ang ranks ng mga nagta-trabaho sa administrasyon," she said.
"Ang sinasabi natin may posibilidad na ‘yung mga opinion ni Senator De Lima, ‘yung kanyang mga sasabihin ay pwedeng pwede, posibilidad na pwedeng para magulo at para magkawatak-watak at magka may suspicion sa ranks ng mga nasa administrasyon," Banaag added.
She also pointed out that Dela Rosa already denied that it was Go who called him to make the request.
However, Banaag said that Malacañang might ask the PNP chief to reveal who his "kumpare" in the Palace is for the benefit of the public. — Trisha Macas/RSJ, GMA News
