With that statement, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte filed a cyber libel case against Queen of All Media Kris Aquino.
The case stemmed from an Instagram post by Aquino in which she thanked Duterte for ‘acknowledging’ that the late Ferdinand E. Marcos was responsible for her father, Ninoy Aquino’s death.
”When I said Cory Aquino lost her ‘husband in the hands of Mr. Marcos,’ I didn’t mean to say that he was responsible for the killing of Ninoy. What I meant was that Ninoy was killed during the time of Marcos. Big difference there.”
To this date, even after two Aquino administratios — Cory and Noynoy — the mastermind of Ninoy’s assassination remains a big question mark.
Kris has yet to respond to the cyber libel case filed by Duterte. She’s busy tying a yellow ribbon ‘round the old oak tree.
