(Watch) Spokesman Harry Roque to Mystica: "May batas po na pwedeng gamitin para parusahan ka"

Presidential spokesman Harry Roque reminded the controversial actress Mystica, that there's a law that could punish her for publishing hate messages against the tough-talking President of the Republic.


Last April 16, Spokesman Harry Roque said that while Pres. Duterte respects the right to freedom of expression, he reminded that free speech also has limitations even in international laws.



"Hindi po absolute and freedom of expression, meron pong hangganan yan, at nakasaad po sa international covenant on civil and political rights na a state can derogate among others dito po sa freedom of expression kapag mayroon pong national emergency,” Roque said.

“Alam po natin na ang COVID ay hindi lang national emergency, it is an international emergency, pu-pwede po tayong magkaroon ng derogation, pwede po nating limitahan ang freedom of expression at yun po ang ginawa natin sa bayanihan act,” he added.

According to the Presidential Spokesman, the Bayanihan Act Section 6 (f) that illegalizing the spread of false information and other messages that only ‘geared’ to destabilize the government.

“So Mystica, may batas po na pu-pwedeng gamitin para parusahan ka,” Roque said.

The controversial actress made some headlines earlier after she posted a video urging the Filipino people to support Vice President Leni Robredo and withdraw their support for Pres. Rody Duterte.



"Sumasang-ayon na talaga ako kung ano yung mga prinsipyo ni Vice President Leni (Robredo). Dati rati, never ako nagbanggit about Leni Robredo. But right now sumusuporta na ako sa kanila. All the way. Sumusuporta ako sa kanila," Mystica said on her video published last month.

"Kaya kung sino ang sumusuporta kay Vice President Leni Robredo, let’s get out there and be in full foce, labanan natin itong gobyerno na ito, lalong lalo na ang ating Presidente," she added.

The statement of Mystica in the controversial video could put the actress in trouble and face inciting to sedition charges accoring to veteran lawyer, Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles. If proven guilty, Mystica could face six years in detention.
