Neri Colmenares on Maria Ressa: Her arrest is harassment!
Atty. Neri Colmenares believes that Maria Ressa’s recent arrest reeks of harassment. The abogado emphasized that Ressa was not in hiding and the timing of the arrest could not be more questionable.
Arresting someone who is not in hiding, at a time when it would be difficult to post bail, smacks of harassment. If Maria Ressa & Rappler were all praises for the government she would not have been arrested this way. The DOJ might have even dismissed the complaint against her.

This government and its balls or lack thereof!
