In a message to reporters, PAOCC spokesman Winston Casio clarified it had been a vlogger, and not PAOCC, who issued the misleading report.

“Fake news yun (That is fake news). A vlogger said that, not PAOCC,” Casio said. “Hindi general nor piskal hinahabol namin, ibang tao (We are not after a general nor a fiscal, it’s a different person.”

Authorities are looking into the possible information leak during the raid of a POGO hub in Porac, Pampanga on June 4.
