MANILA – The Philippine National Police-Anti-Cybercrime Group (PNP-ACG) has dismissed claims of politicking in its probe into an alleged assassination plot against presidential candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.

“The PNP as a whole, is an organization that is non-partisan and has no involvement or interest whatsoever in any political affairs involving our poll bets,” PNP-ACG spokesperson Lt. Michelle Sabino said in a statement Sunday night.

This, after the Kabataan Party-list had chastised the Department of Justice and the ACG for their suspected involvement in an alleged assassination plot on the video sharing app TikTok.

“When we receive reports and complaints we investigate and validate to check its truthfulness and accuracy. We gather evidence/s and facts and if warranted, we pursue the filing of appropriate complaints in the proper courts. Such is always the case,” Sabino said.

Sabino further clarified that while they provided the facts about the TikTok account “ljluna7” following the party-list group, they did not state that the group was complicit in the conspiracy.

The account under the name “ljluna7” had been deleted, but digital forensic experts were able to capture the account’s electronic trace, which will serve as evidence of the crime committed, according to PNP-ACG chief Brig. Gen. Robert Rodriguez.

The account linked to the alleged assassination plot against Marcos had been permanently banned from TikTok.
