A netizen filed a online petition urging mainstream media to report about the so-called #Lenileaks, an exposed conversations among known personalities who are huge supporters of Liberal Party (LP). Those messages are said to be inciting to sedition, which is strictly against the law. The group allegedly plan to oust President Rodrigo Duterte.
“Last Friday, January 6, 2017, Thinking Pinoy wrote an article exposing the exchange of messages at a of Yahoo Groups, Global Filipino Diaspora Council (GDFC), as informed to him by his friend, Sass Rogando Sasot.” Basil Avancado wrote on his petition at Change.org this Saturday, January 7, noting that some members of this groups are LP supporters.
“There have been rumors that LP is cooking a plan to oust President Duterte, but the party members including VP Robredo have denied it. However, the conversations at GDFC Yahoo group suggest otherwise. The problem now is that mainstream media including GMA-7 and ABS-CBN, and newspapers such as Inquirer are not reporting about it.” He added.
