AFP Chief not part of ‘Viber group’ plotting unauthorized movements in WPS

The Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines General Cirilito Sobejana completely disproves the fake information about a group of retired and active military officers allegedly withdrawing support for President Rodrigo Duterte. There is no truth to the posts circulating online that the Chief of Staff is part of a Viber group consisting of some 300 senior military leaders plotting unauthorized movements to address issues in the West Philippine Sea. The AFP trusts the government’s management of the situation in the disputed area and its diplomatic thrust in protecting the sovereignty and sovereign rights of our country. Nevertheless, the military leadership takes cognizance of the presence of individuals and groups that are determined and are engaged in orchestrated efforts to undermine the government. These groups discredit our efforts through fake news intended to agitate and confuse the people to turn against our government or support those who are already rebelling against it. We therefore advise the public to remain calm and dismiss this as propaganda. The AFP commits to the nation its unflinching loyalty to the Constitution and the duly constituted authorities. We assure our people that the soldiers, airmen, sailors and marines of the AFP are firmly behind the chain-of-command.///
