Senator Franklin Drilon said that he too has been a victim of false news in the media.

Drilon told reporters that in 2014, a false report said that he signed a document which allowed gold deposits to Thailand.

"This (report) became the basis of the charge in the Ombudsman. And unfortunately the media prefilled it."

Drilon in 2014 was among those accused of pluder for alleged illegal shipment of gold.

Lawyers Fernando Perito and Rogelio Cantoria filed the complaint to the Ombudsman against the Senate President, President Noynoy Aquino, Mar Roxas, Leila de Lima, Cesar Purisima and Amando Tetangco Jr.

It was, according to the complaint, a $141.3 million or $143-million worth of gold shipment.

The complaint cited a BSP circular No. 49 series of 2014, which was approved on Dec. 22, 2014, regarding the transfer of 3,500 metric tons of 99.999-purity 12.5-kilogram gold bars shipped from a Union Bank of Switzerland account under the name of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos.
