MANILA, Philippines – Malacañang denied receiving a letter from the mother of Olympian skater Michael Martinez, saying it probably went directly into the “spam” folder.
It can be recalled that Mrs. Maria Teresa Martinez claimed she sent an e-mail to Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) headed by Secretary Herminio Coloma using the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org
However, Coloma reiterated he did not get the letter supposedly asking for financial support from President Benigno Aquino III for her son Michael, who was then bound for 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics in Russia to compete.
Coloma said he has ordered his staff in charge of the website to check and verify if an email from Mrs. Martinez reached the address inbox, but the staff reported back it did not, according to Coloma. (Click here to read more)
