Philippine Court Upholds Nobel Laureate’s Cyber Libel Conviction

A Philippines appeals court has affirmed the cyber libel conviction of a Nobel Prize winner who runs a news site critical of former president Rodrigo Duterte. 

Maria Ressa, CEO of Rappler Inc., and her co-accused disagree with the appellate court’s decision, according to a statement. “Both will avail of all legal remedies available to them,” including elevating the matter to the Supreme Court.
