FB post on Greenhills drug raid misleads


A Facebook page shared an 11-month-old Manila Bulletin story of a raid of a shabu laboratory in San Juan City, passing it off as a recent police operation.


The Nov. 21 post by Tatay Digong Totoong Pagbabago was captioned:

Breaking In! Isang Secret Shabu Lab sa North Greenhills ni raid ng mga pulis 204-M Shabu nakuha
Tingnan niyo po to,
Kagimbalgimbal ang nalaman ng mga pulis sa pag raid nila sa isang secret shabu lab ng mga mayayaman sa North Greenhills ..Basahin niyo po ito mga kababayan at Ikalat natin ito sa lahat
(Breaking In! One secret shabu lab in North Greenhills was raided by police and 204-M worth of shabu was obtained.
Look at this,
What the police found out when they raided a secret shabu lab of the rich in North Greenhills is tragic.. Read this, countrymen, and spread it to everyone)

The post links to a Nov. 20 article published by the website Balitang Citizen PH, which in turn attributed the piece to the Manila Bulletin.


The original report was published Dec. 7, 2018, with the headline:

Foul odor leads police to secret shabu lab in North Greenhills; P204-M shabu seized

Both FB post and the website article omitted to mention that the raid happened last year.


Vice President Leni Robredo was also mentioned in the post’s comment section. A Facebook user said:

Kasama ba!!! Kasama ba si Aling Leni sa pag Raif ninyo??? Pag hindi tyak magagalit sa inyo dahil hindi niyo pina alam sa kanya.... o Baka busy sa presscon niya (Was she there!!! Was Aling Leni (Robredo) there in your raid??? If not, she will surely get mad at you because you didn’t let her know… or maybe she is busy with her presscon)!!!

President Rodrigo Duterte appointed Robredo as co-chair of the Inter-agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD) on Oct. 31. She formally accepted the position Nov. 6. She was fired by Duterte on Nov. 24.


Robredo was not part of the ICAD in 2018. (MC, JGL, HP)
