Another ally of former President Benigno Aquino III has rejected Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre’s try to hyperlink him to the violent assault in Marawi City.

“That’s very interesting. If not for the tragic events in Marawi that would even be very funny. But I no longer want to dignify fake news,” former presidential adviser Ronald Llamas mentioned in a press release.

Llamas’ assertion was shared on Twitter by ABS-CBN journalist Lynda Jumilla.
