ABS-CBN Teleradyo inquisitive anchor Zhander Cayabyab asks interesting Qs on Red-tagging Dec. 5



1.Red-tagging as hate speech;
2.Definition of hate speech;
3.Hate speech as proscribed under the UN International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR)
4.Our obligation (the Philippines) under the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties to comply with our obligation under the ICCPR
5.Our obligation (the Philippines) under pacta sunt servanda of customary international law to comply with our international obligations in good faith
6.Hate speech as proscribed under the Civil Code of the Philippines Article 26 par. 4
7.The list of countries that have criminalized hate speech in one form or another

            ( i have benefitted from listening to discussions by Prof. Leo Battad and Prof. Glenda Litong, Prof. Jay Batongbacal, and the UP Law faculty and Visiting Profs. All flaws are mine alone)

     … But the socio-political questions from the news anchor to establish context — i did not prepare for, watch me grapple (all flaws are mine alone) … ABS-CBN news anchors and the news team and producers always ask tough questions.
