Blogger Drew Olivar is in hot water once again for claiming there was a bomb threat during the protest actions to mark the 46th anniversary of the declaration of Martial Law on Friday.

Olivar posted on his Facebook page: “Ay nakakatakot naman magrally sa Edsa, kasi may kumakalat na baka maulit daw ‘yung pagbomba kagaya ng Plaza Miranda! Kung ako sa inyo hindi na ako pupunta!”

On Saturday, the controversial blogger issued an apology for the post and said he only wanted to warn people about the supposed security threat during the rally.

“Siguro sige, magso-sorry ako… magso-sorry lang ako kung may naalarma diyan na iba ang pagkakaintindi sa sinabi ko,” he said in a press conference at Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City.

However, Olivar clarified that his apology did not mean he did something wrong.

“Sasabihin nila ‘pag nag-sorry ako, baka inaamin ko na… sinadya ko. Baka ganoon sabihin ng iba,” he said.

National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) chief Director Guillermo Eleazar said they will raise the Olivar’s bomb scare post to the city prosecutor to determine if he should be charged over it.
