MANILA, Philippines — Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Gen. Dionardo Carlos said Monday that they will verify a supposed assassination threat posted on video app TikTok against presidential aspirant Ferdinand Marcos Jr.

“We will validate it. Mayroon na pong nakipag-ugnayan (we are already in contact with someone),” he told reporters.

“With regard to this report, we are open because our commitment is to secure everyone, our commitment is for a peaceful election,” he added.

This came after the head of the DOJ Office of Cybercrime, Charito Zamora, said she received a text message on Friday concerning a post on TikTok suggesting that an assassination ploy is being planned against Marcos Jr.
