Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque has threatened legal action against those who spread fake news about him.

“Yung mga nagkakalat ng fake news, sasampulan ko kayo, papaimbestigahan ko kayo at ako ay magsasampa ng kaso, antayin niyo po yan. Sa panahon ng pandemiya yung mga walang magawa, wag na kayong magkalat ng fake news,” Roque said in a virtual presser Tuesday.

The Palace official also encouraged the public to be more vigilant against misinformation.

Roque issued the message after the proliferation of a fake quote attributed to him reading: “Covid lang yan, kunti lang namamatay, kahit umabot pa ng 10 million and infected sa Pinas, walang mawawala sa Pinas, walang mawawala sa atin, siguro 10 thousand lang ang patay. Be thankful instead, kasi ang Pangulo natin ay hindi nahahawaan. Kaya blessed pa rin tayo.”

He also asked people to get reliable information from the official Facebook pages of the Office of the Presidential Spokesperson and the Presidential Communications Operations Office.
