Following the arrest of “blogger” Rodel Jayme on charges of inciting sedition after being tagged as Patient Zero in the viral outbreak of the notorious “The Real Narco-list” videos, the spotlight is now on a certain Maru Xie, purportedly also known as Maru Nguyen.
According to a National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) statement reported by the Philippine News Agency, Xie is part of a conversation found within Jayne’s Facebook account that establishes her being a person of interest in this case.
Netizen @doctorluckmd shared on Twitter what appears to be a woman who could be Xie (or Nguyen) together in a photo with Jayme taken from the profile page of one of her social media accounts.
The Twitter handle @maruxie89 (which is the same as the handle used in the above defunct Instagram account), on the other hand, still seems to be active. Though not having much of a following, this account seems to be dedicated to promoting the campaign and the shoutouts of Yellowtard Opposition candidate Romy Macalintal.
Interestingly, a Facebook post of Macalintal “on the campaign trail” features a photo credited to “Maru Nguyen”.
Photos of Xie hobnobbing with other Yellowtard honchos have also started emerging all over social media.
What is the nature of Xie’s relationship with Rodel Jayme if, in fact, both know each other? Jayme for his part has also been seen schmoozing with a who’s who of Opposition Yellowtard leaders…
One wonders then. Was Jayme or Xie also invited to the wedding of Jover Laurio as was most of these Yellowtard — and communist — personalities?
The plot thickens, indeed as the Web of lies, dishonest personalities, and hypocritical “activists” crystallises further.
