Nabbed in separate incidents were Ronnel Mas from Zambales and Ronald Quiboyen from Aklan province. Mas offered P50M while Quiboyen doubled the stake bounty at P100M to anyone who can kill President Rodrigo Duterte on their social media accounts.
According to Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador Panelo, jail time for this kind of violation could take up to 6 years in prison.
These men will be presented for inquest proceedings before the Department of Justice for inciting to sedition concerning the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012; for violation of the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials; and a case for violation of Article 142 of the Revised Penal Code or Inciting to Sedition.
Mas, while in tears apologizing, admitted to the arresting NBI agents that he did post the status because he was seeking attention.
These two gentlemen just made themselves contender for the Darwin Awards.
Remember kids, no matter how much you hate the President, this kind of “attention-seeking disorder”on the internet is a serious matter for any government and is punishable by law. You don’t want to spend many years in jail just because of a stupid post, do you?
Be responsible when you post online and think before you click!
