A video on Facebook (FB) erroneously claims the Supreme Court (SC) has already dismissed the cases seeking to disqualify and void the candidacy of presumptive president Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.

On May 22, a 10-minute video was posted with the title: “JUST IN: FINISH NA! SUPREME COURT PABOR kay BBM/KAMPO ni LENLEN NATARANTA SINOB0AN (sic) ng EBDENSYA (sic) IYAK (JUST IN: It’s finished! Supreme Court voted in favor of BBM; [Vice President Leni Robredo’s] camp panicking, served with evidence, cried)”

Past the two-minute mark, the following text appeared: VICTORY! BINA-SURA (sic) NA LAHAT (Junked all of it).” In support of its claim, the video cited the SC not granting a temporary restraining order to stop the canvassing of votes for the presidential and vice-presidential elections.

The SC has yet to decide on the outcome of these petitions. No official document or legitimate news report has mentioned whether or not the High Court has decided on the cases. The SC is currently on a writing break and will meet again en banc next month.
