European Parliament asks PH Govt to drop all charges against Rappler CEO Ressa


It is as if they are our Colonial Masters.

EU Parliament has dealt the Philippines a deathly blow as its image has been tarnished again by allegations of deteriorating human rights and perceived crackdown on freedom of the press.

Aside from threatening the country with trade sanctions and telling the Philippine government to grant the Lopez controlled ABS-CBN corporation a new broadcast license it has also expressed its “deepest concern” at the “deteriorating level of press freedom in the Philippines” and said that “press freedom and freedom of expression are fundamental components of democracy”.

And has specifically named Rappler founder and CEO Maria Ressa as its prime example.

The EU parliament has asked the Philippine government to drop “all politically motivated charges against Ressa and her writer, Reynaldo Santos, Jr. and to renew the license of ABS-CBN”.

The EU called on its delegation and EU Member States’ representations in Manila to “closely monitor the cases against Ressa and Santos and to provide all necessary assistance” as it condemned “all threats, harassment, intimidation, unfair prosecutions and violence against journalists”.

Maria Ressa was convicted of a crime of Cyber Libel by a Regional Trial Court in Manila.
