MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Philippines’ Court of Appeals has DENIED Rappler’s petition for a reconsideration of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) revocation of its media licence for violation of the Constitution.
In its decision, the Court clearly stated that Rappler is liable for violating the Constitution in as far as the 100% ownership provision of the law regarding media ownership.
But a desperate Rappler chose to to re-interpret (or misinterpret) the ruling, saying that the Court says the license revocation is wrong.
Clearly, the very first paragraph of the decision says the opposite.
So today, the Court issued a gag order to Rappler to stop it from making false interpretations of its decision.
Get that, Maria Ressa? STFU!
