Infanta Mayor Filipina Grace America warns of legal consequences of spreading fake news
Infanta Mayor Filipina Grace America has issued a warning to the public to be more responsible about using social media and not to spread false information.
Not only is this a nuisance, but it is also against the law, according to America.
She said spreading false information, unverified reports, and other forms of disinformation is punishable under Republic Act 10175 or the Anti-Cybercrime law.
Cyber libel is a crime, she reminded the public.
“Pinapaalalahanan ang lahat na maging responsable sa paggamit ng Social Media at huwag magpakalat ng mga maling impormasyon,” she said on Facebook.
