THE Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) on Tuesday disowned dubious operational documents currently in circulation on social media.

Two images of PDEA documents were posted online — an authority to operate and a pre-operation report, both dated Mar. 11, 2012.

“PDEA ran a check through its Plans and Operations Reports Management Information System or PORMIS and found that no such operation was logged on said date,” PDEA said in a statement.

“A critical feature of PORMIS is that one cannot insert or tamper with recorded operations. All pre-operation documents are serialized and recorded in this database. This ensures the system’s integrity and negates any doubt on the data the system contains,” the statement read. 

The agency cautioned the public against fake news, saying artificial intelligence can generate realistic fake videos, spurious documents and fantastic claims at having insider information.
