Did Rappler publish a libelous statement against Malacanang spokesman Salvador Panelo? The mystery persists. A statement posted on Twitter by Rappler in the form of an image outlined their response to the complaint.
For its part, the Inquirer, contacted by GMA News for its report on the story has declined to comment.
“We will wait for the actual libel complaint to be filed before responding,” the Inquirer told GMA News Online in a phone interview.
It seems, however, that an Inquirer staff writer, Marlon Ramos, claimed in a tweet that Panelo had “recommended” executive clemency for Sanchez.
Some prominent folks have, as a result, come forward to give their opinion on the matter…
Panelo should sue for libel. I would. https://t.co/kDBIWZELMf
