MANILA, Philippines—Malacañang was unfazed by the temporary restraining order (TRO) issued by the Supreme Court against the implementation of the controversial cybercrime law, saying it was a ‘provisional remedy,” and not a judgment on its merits.

“The administration will always respect the legal processes that are issued by the court,” deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said in a press briefing.


But Valte said the Palace has yet to see and read the TRO to find out the specific provisions that were stopped by the court.

“And, again, a TRO is a provisional remedy. It is not in any way construed as a judgment on the merits,” she said.
