Philippine journalist at odds with Duterte arrested for libel

The head of a Philippine news website, known for its critical assessment of President Duterte, was arrested on Wednesday on libel charges. Maria Ressa, chief executive of Rappler, is accused of cyber libel over a 2012 article that linked a businessman to murder and trafficking of humans and drugs. Ressa was among several people named ’Person of the Year’ by Time Magazine in 2018.
