Mocha Uson apologizes for ‘honest mistake’ over FB post
“Kahit sino dapat, di porke government official ka, hindi ka maga-appear, so nandito po tayo dahil nag-comply po tayo sa subpoena at pinaliwanag natin ‘yung ating side (Everyone even a government official should appear when summoned, so I am here to comply with the subpoena and to give my side,” Uson told reporters.
“‘Yung ginawa ko naman, ay ang intensyon ko, i-inform yung ating mga kababayan na hindi pinababayaan ng gobyerno ang ating mga health workers, mga front-liners, kaya nga dun sa post ko, nai-share ko ‘yung good news na mayroong ginawa ang gobyerno na mag-provide ng PPE sa ating mga front-liners (What I did, the intention was to inform our countrymen that our government was doing what it can for our front- liners),” she said.
On April 2, Uson posted photos of PPE sets purchased by the government but mistakenly posted one of the photos from SM Foundation that was lifted from a news site. This was corrected later on.
NBI Cybercrime Division chief Victor Lorenzo said his office will evaluate the case against Uson and asked her to file a formal affidavit. — Source:/ (PNA)
