PART I: Did the Governor order the Otso Inidoro attacks
Radio broadcasters working at the information office of the Davao del Norte Capitol under Governor Edwin Jubahib are facing multiple counts of libel and cyber libel cases for “deliberately maligning and defaming” Davao de Oro Governor Jayvee Tyron Uy and his father Provincial Board member Arturo “Chiongkee” Uy.
Lawyer Glen Carnicer, the legal counsel of the Uys, said 20 counts of libel and 20 counts of cyber libel or 40 counts against each member of the group have already been filed in court.
“We are still continuing to prepare more cases, said Carnicer in an interview in Tagum City-based radio station RPFM 99.9 on Monday, July 5.
Even as the broadcasters are employees of Capitol, Carnicer did not say if the broadcasters are under instruction by Jubahib to hit the Uys.
But he said the Uys suspect political motives as the attacks in the broadcast of the group are always followed with the group promoting their candidates. There is a deliberate purpose to malign and defame the Uy family with the malicious commentaries so there is political motive, said Carnicer in the Bakbak radio program , also streamlined on Facebook, anchored by Kid Libunao.
The group of eight broadcasters since early May had launched brutal attacks in their commentaries against the Uys, accusing the officials of various acts of corruption in government deals.
Documents from Capitol, have identified the members of the broadcasters working at theProvincial Information, Communication and Knowledge Management Office (PICKMO) under the Office of the Governor, their designation and compensation.
