A journalist from Baguio City, Frank Cimatu is now facing the possibility of being sued for libel by the Agriculture Secretary Manny Piñol.

This is after Cimatu's post about the latter that depicts that Piñol gained 21M in 6 months. Even hinting that Piñol gained that by taking advantage of the bird flu outbreak.

Manny Piñol was a follower of former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. After Arroyo's term, he left the government service and focused on his business. He has farms and a poultry, where he loaned 10M from Landbank for.

Given the said information, it is easy to understand that naturally, the SALN that are required from government officials, which Piñol submitted would lack the years that he was not in the government. His last SALN was last 2009 where he declared P3,643,000 in the SALN he filed as of Dec. 31, 2009, the next one is P25,599,632.23 in his latest SALN as of Dec. 31, 2016.

According to Piñol, he was in Hungary about to eat his late lunch when a friend sent him the screenshot below.


This is the first time that he heard about the accusation so immediately went to the comment section where a word war started. He then posted a long explanation along with all the comments he wrote, for filing and evidence in case the other party deletes them.





His post immediately gained the support of his followers.
