INC belies letter endorsing Duterte

ABS-CBN News

MANILA - The Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) has denied it issued a letter signed by Executive Minister Eduardo Manalo endorsing the presidential bid of Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.

INC spokesperson Edwil Zabala said the letter, which has been circulating online, did not come from Manalo.

Zabala said the INC would file charges against those who forged Manalo's signature.

The religious sect's denial comes after President Benigno Aquino III visited the INC headquarters in Quezon City on Monday.
