MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Subject to fact-checking by Rappler and Vera Files – In a single tweet, Ellen Tordesillas of Vera Files accused Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte of supplying weapons to the International Criminal Court (ICC).
Duterte is facing a complaint before ICC for alleged crimes against humanity.
Tordesillas’ latest tirade against Duterte follows her previous accusation that the president is the No. 1 source of fake news.
The Adobo Chronicles talked to Tordesillas as she was leaving a television studio where she figured in an embarrassing interview where she aaaah’d and uuuuhm’d when asked about her working definition of fake news.
Tordesillas said that the weapons supplied by Duterte to ICC includes Uzi’s, semi-automatic rifles, multi-calibre guns and other assault ammunition.
The Adobo Chronicles could not immediately fact-check Tordesillas’ claim.
