Delfin calls Duterte ouster list "fake news"


Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana on Tuesday dismissed allegations by former Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte that Vice President Leni Robredo and several others were involved in a plot to oust his father, President Rodrigo Duterte.

“The first time that I saw that posting, I say it’s a fake news. I still maintain that’s a fake news” Lorenzana told reporters at the Villamor Air Base on the sidelines of handover ceremonies of the Balangiga Bells.

In a post on his Facebook page, the younger Duterte named Robredo, some Catholic bishops, Tindig Pilipinas, and Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation director Carmen Pedrosa as those involved in the plot.
