MANILA - A post of a supposed ABS-CBN News report claiming the "Ombudsman has reopened graft case" against a former Bulacan provincial administrator was published Saturday by a Facebook page.

However, the Facebook post by Bocaue Ngayon is fake and the screenshot was doctored. ABS-CBN News did not publish the article.
