MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) has warned the public to be wary of fake news, as it debunked false operational documents allegedly from the agency, circulating online.

PDEA issued the statement on Tuesday following a recent vlog posted by Maharlika and online pages shared two pictures of the false documents — Authority to Operate and a Pre-Operation Report — online, which was purportedly issued last March 11.

“PDEA ran a check through its Plans and Operations Reports Management Information System or PORMIS and found that no such operation was logged on said date,” the agency said.

It added that PORMIS has a critical feature barring the “inserting or tampering” of recorded operations since all pre-operational documents are “serialized and recorded in its database.”

“This ensures the system’s integrity and negates any doubt on the data the system contains. In an age where Artificial Intelligence can generate realistic fake videos, spurious documents and fantastic claims at having ‘insider information’, the public is cautioned to be more careful in believing such fake news,” PDEA said.
