Senator Trillanes filed administrative and libel cases against Mocha Uson for spreading “fake news” on Friday, September 22, 2017.
The move was his response to Uson’s recent spread of Trillanes alleged offshore bank accounts.
According to reports, Trillanes filed libel cases under the Anti-Cybercrime Law, one administrative case and grave misconduct for performing at a casino.
“The era of fake news is over. Everyone spreading fake news will be held liable under the law. That’s a lesson for all people spreading fake news,” said Trillanes.
