The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) on Tuesday, April 2, called the circulating pre-operation report against President Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr. "fake news."

"The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) debunks the false operational documents currently in circulation in social media," it said in a statement posted on its official Facebook page.

The statement was issued after vlogger Maharlika Boldyakera posted on Facebook a photo of a supposed PDEA pre-operation report dated March 11 stating that targets "Bongbong Marcos @ Bonget, and some unidentified male and female cohorts" were caught "using illegal drugs inside" a condo unit in Rockwell Makati City.


Boldyakera also released a picture of the alleged authority to operate.

According to PDEA, no operation was logged in its data system called Plans and Operations Reports Management Information System (PORMS) last March 11.

"A critical feature of PORMIS is that one cannot insert or tamper with recorded operations. All pre-operation documents are serialized and recorded in this database. This ensures the system's integrity and negates any doubt on the data the system contains," it added.


The agency advised the public to be cautious "in believing such fake news."

The PDEA earlier clarified that Marcos "was not and was never" included in its drug watch list, contrary to the accusation of former president Rodrigo Roa Duterte.
