CEBU CITY, Philippines — Police are investigating if the Facebook posts about people offering money to kill President Rodrigo Duterte is a “political move”.
Police Brigadier General Albert Ignatius Ferro, director of Police Regional Office in Central Visayas (PRO-7), said that they were investigating if there were anti-government groups that were behind such movements.
“That’s political. These group are trying to destroy the gains we have done with our president leading the way,” said Ferro.
However, Ferro said that if the police would be able to find out who was behind the posts and were instigating these movements, they would be investigated accordingly and charges would be filed against them also.
He said that they would not tolerate those who would subvert this government.
From previous reports, the Cordova Police and Criminal Investigation Group(CIDG) were able to arrest Ma. Catherine Bentolan Ceron, 26, in her home in Sitio Tumoy, Barangay Ibabao, Cordova.
