Jover Laurio Arrested For Cyber Crime Charges

B4A3ECA1-EF70-403B-9F9F-2E64AB57CA4FMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – There is Press Freedom in the Philippines (too much, in fact), but there is also a limit to what one can express, especially on social media.

Pinoy Ako Blog’s Jover Laurio learned this lesson well when she was arrested by authorities on charges of cyber crime. Not just cyber crime, but wishing death on President Rodrigo Duterte and his family.

Authorities did not need any witnesses to the charges.  Laurio herself provided the “resibo” :


“A death wish is a death wish is a death wish,” said a spokesperson for the arresting authorities.
