Elanel Egot Ordidor is a Filipina citizen working in Taiwan as a caregiver. Her facebook account used the pseudonym Linn Silawan. In early April, she posted a profanity laden video on facebook commenting on Philippines dictator…sorry, “president” Rodrigo Duterte and his incompetent handling of the epidemic.
Within days, Duterte’s goons, lackeys and errand runners demanded Ordidor be repatriated to the Philippines, and that she would be charged with “the crime of cyber libel for willful posting of nasty and malevolent materials against President Duterte on Facebook intended to cause hatred”.
When I heard this, my first thought was “What did she say? Did she incite assassination or call for armed rebellion?” I haven’t seen the video (it’s in Tagalog, anyway), and none of the commercial “news” media reported what her words contained.
There’s lots more below the fold.
