Maria Ressa Awaits A Third Warrant Of Arrest, This Time For Violation Of Immigration Law

9932589A-DF46-4A57-90F5-C1C1ED92D59A.jpegMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – First it was for tax evasion.  Then it was for cyber libel.  Now Rappler CEO Maria Ressa is facing yet another charge — that of double identity.

The new case was filed by the Bureau of Immigration against Ressa after she tweeted that every time she would exit or arrive in the Philippines, she would have both her U.S. and Philippine passports stamped by Immigration.  Apparently, that is a violation of universally-recognized immigration policy of single identity.

Ressa’s tweet came after Manila Times columnist Rigoberto Tiglao described  her as being “ashamed” of her Filipino identity.  Ressa is a dual citizen of the U.S. and the Philippines.615B7C02-704B-450E-8EEF-75416F873BCC

A spokesperson for the Bureau told The Adobo Chronicles that having two stamped passports for a single arrival or departure is tantamount to fakery which is against Philippine and International laws.

A third warrant of arrest is forthcoming and can only add to Ressa’s self-inflicted reputation as a victim of political persecution, intimidation and suppression of her Freedom of Speech.
