Maila Ager of Inquirer.net reports that Senate Majority Leader Vicente "Tito" Sotto III "is now planning to file a bill seeking to junk the libel law."

Maila Ager of Inquirer.net reports that Senate Majority Leader Vicente "Tito" Sotto III "is now planning to file a bill seeking to junk the libel law." This may seem strange to many of us since it’s Sotto who is deemed responsible for inserting the so-called libel provision in the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012.

 

According to the Inquirer.net report, Sotto, in an October 3 radio interview, said: "Gusto nila magpa-file naman ako ng bill, alisin na natin ang libel para pwede ko na rin silang murahin (If they want, I will file a bill to remove libel so I can also engage them in mudslinging). The comedian-turned-senator, also added: "Hindi na decriminalizing, removing. Magda-draft ako in the next few days (We will no longer decriminalize libel, we will remove it altogether. I will make a draft in the next few days)."
