R. Tiglao: Rappler & DFA Traitor Should Be Investigated for Leaking Pres. Trump & Pres. Duterte's Phone Call


Veteran columnist and former diplomat Rigoberto Tiglao on his latest article for The Manila Times urged the national government to investigate the news website Rappler and the DFA traitor who leaked the confidential conversation between US Pres. Donald Trump and Pres. Rody Duterte.


Rappler in coordination with its sister company The Intercept release the transcript of the phone conversation between the two leaders last April 29, the phone conversation was leaked by some Yellow moles at the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) to Rappler and US-based website The Intercept.

The disclosure of such confidential information to various news outlets not only in the Philippines but also internationally is such an appalling betrayal of our country's welfare and we should be outraged over it according to Tiglao.

During the conversation between Pres. Trump and Pres. Duterte, the US President praised Pres. Duterte on his successful campaign against illegal drugs, but a highly classified information was also released through the confidential document which made us a laughingstock of the whole world.


Rappler's scoop has damaged the country's image irreparably, some people might say that the Philippine government can't be trusted because we can't keep state secrets, according to some diplomats who are shocked at the report released by Rappler.

The news website Rappler did not directly say that they got the information through their investigative skills but their sources pointed out to The Intercept which happens to be founded by their international backer Pierre Omidyar, which makes them a sister company.

According to R. Tiglao, the NBI or the National Intelligence Coordinating Authority should investigate the officials involved namely Acting Assistant Secretary Marshal Louis M. Alferez, Undersecretary for Civilian Security and Consular Affairs, Ariel Abadilla and Undersecretary for Policy Enrique A. Manalo.

To know more about the revelations of R. Tiglao with the confidential documents leaked by Rappler, just head on to the official website of The Manila Times.
