“It’s been a long time, Tito Sen! Deny us our freedom of speech and of expression through R.A. 10175 and we will deny you your cyberspace,” the hacker posted on Sotto’s website.
“You cannot shut us up, you cannot shut us down. And you shall not see us rest until R.A. 10175 is revised,” the hacker said.
RA 10175 —the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012—became controversial because it criminalizes online libel, among other things, angering journalists who have been campaigning for the decriminalization of libel.
It was Sotto who proposed the libel provision in the controversial law.
