Edito Mapayo, anchor at Claver FM Radio 91.1 MHz was arrested by the provincial police, around 12 noon today over charges of cyber libel.
The PNP Drug Enforcement Unit filed the cyber libel complaint against Mapayo over the latter's social media post about the arrest of a drug suspect. The complaint was initially dismissed by the prosecutor in March this year but the police reportedly appealed the decision.
Mapayo was brought to the Claver Municipal Police Station. His colleagues were able to raise funds for the P10,000 bail but Mapayo was told that he would have to spend the night at the police station.
