House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano seems to have refuted his statement over those trying to smear the name of the country or the Southeast Asian Games (SEAG), and now sees no problem for media reporting the lapses and other negative impressions in hosting the bi-annual sporting event.

“Hindi po, hindi po. To be fair even like ABS-CBN naglabas sila kung anong fake at anong totoo even yung hindi siguradong totoo…,” Cayetano told radio DZMM when asked if he’s against the negative reporting on SEA Games.

He added the there is no problem on reporting the alleged event mishandlingss on venues for as long as it’s a “fair criticism.”

“Yun lang po talagang kapag fake na ayaw naman i-report. Halimbawa po nung sinabing kikiam, wala man lang kumuha ng picture o tinignan kung kikiam ba tlaga tapos lumabas chicken sausage pala,” said Cayetano.

But Cayetano said he and PHISGOC will pursue charges against a “PR-man” and those behind Facebook pages and websites spreading hoaxes and false information against the hosting of SEA Games.

“Yung nag-o-opearate ngayon at nakita na namin kung anong mga website ito at kung sinong PR-man nito, maghanda rin kayo dahil kasama kayo sa imbestigasyon dahil yung pinalabas niyong pinakain namin ng baboy ang mga kapatid nating Muslim at pinalabas niyo na yung swimming pool ng Nepal ay swimming pool natin etc. Sabotahe yan!” said Cayetano

According to Cayetano, at least four Facebook pages and websites were the fake news against SEA Games originated have already been identified.

“Meron pong at least apat na Facebook pages at website na doon nagsisimula lahat tapos, ikinakalat to the same groups,” said Cayetano.

“May isang team kami ngayon na kinakalap yun at baka humingi kami ng tulong sa NBI,” he added.

Cayetano on Thursday issued a threat that he will not only unmask those purveying “fake news” against the Philippines’ hosting of SEA Games but he will make sure that those go beyond the bounds of the law will be liable for libel or cyber-libel.
