  1. Sorry for the disruption

    We were in the process of relocating the DI website to a new server when we lost power overnight. Unfortunately we were unable to restore the server until now. The transfer has been completed and currently 2 web servers are serving the DI site - the old server displays this message. As DNS caches update, users will begin to filter onto the new server - you will know this has happened by the absence of this notice. Please note - any new posts posted to this server will not make it onto the new server.

    Two interesting articles I read today, which I hope are relevant:

    https://www.manilatimes.net/2021/10/16/news/ph-drops-to-102nd-spot-in-rule-of-law-index/1818628

    "THE Philippines is still among the countries in the region with the weakest rule of law, ranking 102nd in the latest World Justice Project's (WJP) Rule of Law Index that covers 139 countries and jurisdictions .... Based on the report, the Philippines dropped from 91st out of 128 countries in the index last year and remained at 13th place out of 15 countries in East Asia and the Pacific region, ahead of Myanmar and Cambodia."

    https://www.manilatimes.net/2021/10...print-broadcast-criticisms-vs-duterte/1818516

    "One in every two Filipinos considers it "dangerous to print or broadcast anything critical of the administration, even if it is the truth," results of the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey revealed." [Does that mean that half the people don't know it is illegal (as far as I am aware) to make negative comments about anyone or any organisation under the libel laws even if it is true???].

    If the intent was to harm the reputation of the person or organization. If it was too inform the public it is not illegal. Though you could have a hard and expensive time proving your intent in court.

    I don't disagree with things I know little about but I recall a case recently of someone having sh*te treatment in hospital and having a case filed by the doctor for telling people about it. So on one hand this is 'to inform the public' (so legal) but 'harms the reputation (of the doctor)' and so is illegal (the argument would be on 'intent' I assume). Many a lawyer gets rich on that one!
