Ressa and Duterte: Is The President Suppressing The Press?

A global spotlight has been put on the recent arrest of Maria Ressa, an acclaimed journalist in the Philippines. Ressa is chief executive of Rappler, a news site known to have been critical of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. Because of that, the cyber-libel charges against her have raised questions about government encroachment on media freedom.

We speak to Rappler journalist Gemma B. Mendoza about the significance and implications of Ressa’s arrest.

Presented by: Joyce Goh, Julian Ng, Sharidz Abdullah
