Leni Robredo To Sue Manila Bulletin For Cyber Libel!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – For prematurely sending Leni Robredo to the after life, a Philippine national news daily, the Manila Bulletin is being sued by the Vice President for cyber libel.

The case stems from the newspaper’s online news headline that referred to “Robredo’s remains” in a story relating to a recent Pulse Asia survey showing Robredo in a distant 6th spot among possible 2022 “Presidentiables.”

This is the second infamous cyber libel case brought forth against Philippine news media. Many will recall that a private individual sued Rappler CEO Maria Ressa for the same crime, resulting in her conviction by the courts.

Robredo told The Adobo Chronicles that she will not take this malicious headline sitting down. “I will fight this case to the end, with my life,” she said in a statement prepared by her speechwriter.
