Philippines: Cease attacks on the media, freedom of expression

, Index number: ASA 35/1818/2020

Amnesty International condemns the Philippine government’s latest efforts to clamp down on the media, including the Solicitor General’s ongoing attempts to shut down ABS-CBN, one of the country’s largest TV networks. Amnesty International calls on the government to immediately end any moves to shut down ABS-CBN, as well as other media networks in the country, and urges it to respect, protect and fulfil the right to freedom expression and media freedom. The organization views the government’s latest attack against a media network with alarm, seeing it as a sign of the further deterioration of the country’s human rights situation.
