18/03/2018: STATEMENT OF THE PHILIPPINE EMBASSY ON THE FALSE STORY POSTED ON CITY HERALD WEBSITE

18 March 2018 - There is absolutely no truth to the story posted on the website City Herald that Philippine Ambassador to the US Jose Manuel Romualdez was identified as among those who perished in the Florida bridge collapse.

Ambassador Romualdez is very much alive and doing well in Washington, D.C.

Spreading false stories in the wake of a tragedy is deplorable. We call on all responsible netizens to stop sharing information posted by dubious outfits such as City Herald. ###
