Duterte blogger RJ Nieto pleads not guilty to Trillanes’ libel case
Duterte administration blogger Rey Joseph Nieto—who calls himself Thinking Pinoy—has pleaded not guilty to spreading fake news about opposition Senator Antonio Trillanes IV.
Nieto entered his plea during his arraignment for libel before the sala of Pasay City Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 111 Judge Wilhelmina Wagan.
His indictment arose from Trillanes’s complaint regarding his post claiming that “US President Trump reportedly called Senator Antonio Trillanes IV a ‘narco.’”
The next hearings were set on December 5 and January 20.
