On Wednesday, March 6, Malacañang accused Princess Jacel Kiram, daughter of Sultan Jamalul Kiram III, of using an alleged fake photo showing "Malaysian casualties."

 

A photo of the princess showing the allegedly fake photo has been circulating among media outfits. GMA News Online posted such a photo (see screenshot below) with this caption: "Princess Jacel Kiram, daughter of Sulu Sultan Jamalul Kiram III, shows on Sunday a purported image of Malaysian casualties after a clash between Malaysian authorities and armed followers of Sultan Kiram in Lahad Datu, Sabah. A similar photo of the Princess appeared on the front page of the Philippine Star. After being alerted by readers, GMA News Online has verified that the image is fake, and most probably of dead Thai soldiers killed in Thailand in 2007. The image of the Thais has previously appeared elsewhere on the Internet."

    She's a liar. She lied a lot since the crisis began. She must also lied about being the Princess.

    One should not armed himself as if he is going to war if on the other hand he intends to negotiate peacefully. If kiram was to go to meet the president at malacanang whilst carry rifles and guns, and tell the president that he comes peacefully, won't the security details arrest him first? Perhaps he would be shot first! He shouldn't be carrying weapons in the first place entering sabah to negotiate n made him claim.

    That's rather ironic given that that's the exact same image that was going around Facebook, claiming that the image was of Filipino soldiers. :(

    If you ask me, China is behind this because they know they have no chance in the West Philippine Sea.
