Robredo spreading fake news about AFP, DND - Velez


Rumors spread that the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and Department of National Defense (DND) answered no when questioned about supporting the establishment of a revolutionary government at a security briefing requested by Vice President Leni Robredo.


This rumor is said to be false according to Network Revolution (NetRev) spokesperson Vivian Velez.

Velez, and other NetRev members, posted on Facebook that DND chairman Delfin Lorenzana never said that the mentioned groups will not support a revolutionary government.

What was said, according to Velez, was “the President is a lawyer, therefore he knows what he is doing.”

This is not a confirmation, per se, that the groups support or do not support the establishment of a revolutionary government.

It is simply a statement acknowledging that the president must be trusted because of his success as a lawyer, and his knowledge and intellect that comes with the title.

However stories have spread throughout the internet and in news sites that VP Robredo confirmed that the AFP and DND do not support the revolutionary government.

Velez said that these are lies that are being spread to the Filipino people, and that the security briefing is being used by the Robredo camp to “preempt the sovereign will that is about to explode.


The Network Revolution is composed of a number of Filipinos that wholeheartedly support President Rodrigo Duterte and his administration. They have been vocal in their support towards the president ever since his assumption into the position

The group hopes for the success of the Duterte administration, especially in establishing a federal government that they believe is a necessary step for the Philippines to take to further improve and develop the country.

Below is the full text of Velez’ post: 

"Network Revolution thru its spokesperson Ms.Vivian Velez sought clarification on the statement of VP Leni Robredo regarding what SND Delfin Lorenzana said about the establishment of revolutionary government.


And this is what SND said to Ms Leni Robredo when asked about the rumored establishment of a revolutionary government during the security briefing:

He only said, "the President is a lawyer, therefore he knows what he is doing."

He never said that the AFP will not support a revolutionary government.

Somebody lied to the Filipino people again using the security briefing as a cover to preempt the sovereign will that is about to explode."
