“He used this deliberate lie to brainwash the minds of the Filipino public by recklessly spreading lies to blacken the image and reputation of an honest official. He even had the boldness of quoting scriptures to promote his lies, mislead his flock, and confuse the public with the aim of blackening someone else’s reputation, ”the lawsuit reads hollow . They are inherently criminal and cannot go unpunished, ”she added. Pacquiao’s complaint came from a video clip posted on social media in which Quiboloy said Pacquiao funded the unfinished Sarangani Sports Training Center for pesos 3.5 billion. He showed the dilapidated stands and the overgrown grass in the facility. Quibuloy, a staunch supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte, said during his appearance on his SMNI television network and on social media that Pacquiao himself was involved in corruption. Quiboloy released the video after Pacquiao said there was widespread corruption in the government. Pacquiao said the 3.5 billion pesos Quiboloy mentioned was used for the Philippine sports training center in Bataan. He said he had nothing to do with it. “The dilapidated buildings shown in Quiboloy’s video were actually old facilities at the Sarangani Provincial Sports Complex,” Pacquiao said.
