Jim Paredes Volunteers To Give Up His Dual Citizenship

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – One big difference between Duterte critics Rappler CEO Maria Ressa and retired entertainer Jim Paredes is that Ressa will not give up her dual citizenship no matter what.

But  Paredes is the opposite.  He told The Adobo Chronicles he is happy to let go of one of his citizenships if only to show the world that he is truly sorry about that viral sex video which has brought shame and scandal to both his  (dual)  citizenships.

”Today, I am announcing  that I will voluntarily  renounce my senior citizenship in order to protect the dignity and  reputation of my country’s senior citizens,” Paredes, 67, said.

Rappler CEO Maria Ressa Very Disappointed About Jim Paredes’ Viral Sex Video

9F964909-2AD6-4A5F-AD51-1C6460625382MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – She was the darling of the press, especially among the Yellows and critics of President Rodrigo Duterte. For what could be a juicier news report than a very bright, outspoken and committed vanguard of press freedom being criminally charged and arrested multiple times?

But alas, all things must come to an end.

Rappler CEO Maria Ressa told The Adobo Chronicles that she is very disappointed at the public fascination and attention given to retired entertainer and Duterte critic Jim Paredes’ viral sex video.

”The press and the people have forgotten about me and my press freedom crusade. Jim has taken the spotlight away from me,” she said.

“Jim has also made Rappler’s hard-hitting news stories and investigative reporting seem pale and irrelevant compared to his juicy video,” Ressa added

Maria Ressa Re-Arrested, U.S. Dollar Bail Fell Short

4EC0FDE4-B441-42C8-A5EB-6BAFE3675E13MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Rappler CEO Maria was recently arrested on anti-dummy law charges soon after she arrived at NAIA.  But despite all that airport drama, she was  released after she posted the required P90,000 bail.

Today, however, the Philippine National Police (PNP) re-arrested Ressa and she is now detained at Camp Crame, just meters away from Senator Leila De Lima’s jail cell.

The Adobo Chronicles contacted PNP to clarify matters regarding Ressa’s re-arrest.

Apparently, Ressa posted bail in U.S. dollars (she is a dual citizen). However, her lawyers failed to check on the  U.S. dollar-Philippine peso exchange rate at the time she posted bail. It turned out her dollar bail payment, when converted to PH pesos, was short by P90.

So Ressa is back behind bars.
