The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) yesterday belied an opposition lawmaker's reported allegations that President Duterte has issued a directive to stop patrol operations at the disputed West Philippine Sea. Colonel Edgar Arevalo, AFP spokesperson, said that Magdalo party-list Representative Gary Alejano's claims about the supposed Duterte orders were "malicious." "I do not know where Cong. Alejano got that supposed instruction from the Commander-in-Chief. Malamang kuryente 'yan (Probably it's a false news) if not yet another malicious imputation on the President dragging the AFP in," Arevalo said.
