Palace will always respect legal processes, says Valte
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.
