MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine National Police (PNP) on Thursday warned the public against the re-emergence of a 5-year-old false crime report on social media.
The PNP was referring to a 2017 post on Facebook showing the supposed discovery of a dismembered body in Quezon City — which was already proven to be a hoax.
“Please always be mindful of the authenticity of the information and the credibility of its source,” PNP chief Rodlfo Azurin Jr. said in a statement.
“Unverified information or any information that cannot be independently validated as factual should always be dealt with caution and prudence, especially if the source is dubious or unknown,” he added.
