Policemen from the city of Pasig were waiting for Ms Ressa at the airport and served her a warrant of arrest as soon as she arrived from San Francisco

, an online news portal in the Philippines, and a known critic of President Rodrigo Duterte, was arrested when she alighted from a plane at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1 on Friday morning, March 29. She has been charged with violating the anti-dummy law.. A warrant of arrest against Ms Ressa had been issued on Thursday, March 28.

The warrant against Ms Ressa read, “To any officer of the law, you are hereby commanded to arrest the person Maria Angelita Ressa who is to be found at or elsewhere and who stand charged before me of the crime of violation of Section 2-A of Commonwealth Act No. 108 or the Anti-Dummy Law.”On Wednesday, March 27, Ms Ressa’s co-defendants paid the same amount in bail even though no warrant had been issued at that point since defendants are allowed to post bail before the issuance of a warrant.
