DCN Board of Directors condemns Maria Ressa verdict

June 15, 2020 | By DCN

“The conviction of Maria Ressa is a travesty. This entire case is a brazen attempt to silence her news organization and should be considered an affront to freedom and democracy itself. It is vital we value and protect the independence of media organizations and journalists around the world. The United States Congress has recently condemned the Philippine government’s harassment of Ressa and we encourage global leaders and the press community to make it clear this absolutely cannot be tolerated.”
