released a video showing the struggle that calls for a shark brooks his life plus in the bundesliga a sad club record. the royal blues hold high flying leverkusen to a draw but have now gone 13 straight league matches with. hello i'm terry martin good to have you with us a court in the philippines has convicted a prominent journalist of the crime of cyber libel maria teresa now faces up to 6 years in prison watchdogs have called the case a serious erosion of press freedom under president reagan who tapped. award winning journalist maria ressa arriving in court in manila to learn her fate. the verdict
10:02 am
guilty of cyber libel 482012 article her website rappler published linking a businessman to human trafficking and drug smuggling. ressa once worked for c.n.n. and holds dual u.s. philippine citizenship she says she's been devastated by the verdict which she sees as a part of a government campaign against her and her publication. next year will be my 35th year as a journalist i began as a reporter in the 6 and i have worked so many countries around the world. that threaten but never this kind of death by a 1000 cuts the case was closely watched as a test of press freedom under populist president would require. the court heard the libel complaint even though the article in question was published 4 months before the cybercrime law was enacted russ and rappler are not the only prominent philippine media to face problems with the authorities last month one of the country's leading broadcasters was shut down rights groups warned the country is
10:03 am
entering dangerous territory it is indeed a verse. in this country. this sends a message to every journalist. who wants. or you're going to the next russia now faces a prison term of up to 6 years in spite of the verdict she vows not to be silenced . joins us from manila maria what went through your mind as the judge read this guilty verdict against you. it wasn't unexpected if you look at it in the context of the 8 criminal charges cites case i had to post bail 8 times last year just to remain free. and then the slew of attacks against journalists in that has intensified with the shutdown of the largest broadcaster just last month. i suppose i walked in feeling in
10:04 am
knowing that there could be a worst case scenario that would is even worse than this one and so when i listen to it i just i tried hard not to get angry and then to figure out how do we continue doing our jobs better given these facts are you prepared to go to jail terry you know i think this is a question i had to confront a while back because clooney actually just pointed out to the that the cumulative charges the maximum jail penalty for all of them is almost 100 years and so i think the question is that not challenging these cases would mean that i would give up the rights that are guaranteed in the constitution not just freedom of the press but also the rights of filipinos to information to hold power to account. and you see this verdict that's been handed down today as part of
10:05 am
a campaign against you and your your website rappler dot com by present to tatiana's government what evidence do you have for such a campaign. the actions of the government part of the reason rappler caved into the crosshairs is because we continue challenging the the number of deaths in a very brutal drug war the commission on human rights in the philippines estimates months ago that it was over 27000 people killed in punitive there and then here you can see that you know we were under trial the day yes the verdict came out today but the justice system was also under trial because what's happened in the last few years is the weaponization of the law the law tweaked legal acrobatics used against journalists perceived critics oppositions and in that sense that also
10:06 am
follows the kind of exponential attacks what we call the propaganda machine on social media so that narratives of the attacks come out 1st on social media and then the law the weaponization of the law follows c'mon 8 cases that are all criminal charges arrest warrants i was arrested last year and detained you can see these actions and i think you know to not take them in a gret in a granular scale because every single one sounds almost clause of all the attempt to shut down rattler to revoke our business license happened in january 28th seed and again that if you get lost in the details sure it sounds plausible but when you look at the context of it and the context of a is overwhelming it isn't just a chilling effect on media well that's what i wanted to ask you about what message do you think that your convictions sends to other journalists working in the philippines. i've been
10:07 am
a cautionary tale. rappler has been a cautionary tale for journalists in the philippines be silent or your next that's what the government to say the government wants us to know it's got tremendous power but it also wants to me as he of the needier of rule of law and as long as it wants to maintain that the neo we built it to do with our jobs and pushing back and challenging these cases in court you mention earlier that you're facing other charges there are numerous other charges you could face up to 100 years in prison for all those what motivates you to continue your work as a journalist in the philippines under these conditions i think because like you we know something is happening at this time period right this is a unique moment in history and we're seeing a rise of a surratt area populist style leaders of national almost and you're seeing the attacks on media it i don't think i've lived and i'm this is my 34th year i'm going
10:08 am
to be a i'm an old journalist you know and and i've never seen anything like this i've worked in war zones i covered conflicts but this is is a different time period and i feel like in my country at least we're standing on the precipice and we must do always 10 to protect press freedom which protects our democracy maria thank you so much for taking time to talk with us today that was journalist maria ressa in manila. across europe borders are reopening as more and more countries ease measures imposed to control the spread of the coronavirus germany and france dropped border checks overnight allowing unrestricted road traffic to resume you're looking at the scene this morning at a crossing near strasbourg earlier it was a scene of celebration as people gather to mark their restored freedom of movement here was one of many closed 3 months ago but not all of europe's internal borders
