Olalia explained that the case was just excavated against Ressa and is a show of prior restraint from the government. The abogado warned the public that it does not matter what your profession is, you can be the target of the Duterte administration.
The abogado said that dissenters or critics of the President will eventually suffer the same fate. If you criticize so good, they will make you look bad.
