If you can’t resist making critical posts online, don’t go making calls to take down the government.

Free Legal Assistance Group (FLAG) chairman Chel Diokno gave the advise amid closer scrutiny being made by law enforcement against those making posts online.

“Iwasan ang mga salitang nanghihikayat na pabagsakin ang pamaahalaan sa pamamagitan ng dahas,” read his latest social media post on Tuesday (April 7).

“Ito ay maaaring maging sanhi ng pagsampa ng kasong inciting to sedition o inciting to rebellion,” he warned.

Diokno reminded there is nothing wrong with constructive criticism.

“Hindi labag sa batas ang constructive criticism. Dahil sa positibong pagpuna, naaitatama natin ang mga mali sa ating lipunan,” explained Diokno but dissuaded against making curses and insults.

Diokno also advised those who posted criticisms online to first seek a lawyer before if they are being forced to apologize or go to a barangay hall.

Recently, University of the East (UE) student and Dawn edito-in-chief Joshua Molo was forced to apologized for his critical posts by his former teachers who threatened to file charges against him.

Diokno had previously criticized the government for running after persons for posting online criticisms.

“Pati ordinaryong mamamayang nagpo-post ng hinaing online, pinapatawag ng NBI,” he had said.

“Ang dami nang namamatay, pati frontliners, pero imbis na COVID, kritiko ang gusto nilang puksain,” he pointed out.
