FB page administrators to face police probe
CEBU police will investigate the administrators of the Facebook page Cebu Flash Report in relation to their post claiming the supposed discovery of a bomb in Barangay Basak, Lapu-Lapu City.
Chief Supt. Noli Taliño, Police Regional Office chief, said he ordered the anti-cyber crime division to investigate the administrators.
“Posting unverified reports on Facebook that caused alarm and undue panic is punishable under the cybercrime law,” Taliño said.
In one of its posts Tuesday afternoon, CFR stated that a bomb was found near a store in Barangay Basak. Police rushed to the area to check only to find a cassette player that didn’t contain any improvised explosive device (IED).
