Rappler CEO Maria Ressa said in an interview with CNN Philippines that she is ready to be arrested if worse comes to worst between the news organization and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

She said that if the Department of Justice decides to officially halt their operation and orders to put her behind bars, she is willing to abide.

However, she promised that she will fight for the organization and her people until the end.

“If that’s what they decide, what you can you do, right? We are asking and fighting for due process. If they decide they are going to arrest me, I will have bail. What can you do? We live in this country,” Ressa told CNN Philippines.

SEC initially revoked Rappler’s license to operate last Thursday, January 11, for supposedly violating the Anti-Dummy Law which limits foreign control on local companies in the Philippines.

Rappler has already reiterated that their foreign investors have no control over its operation.

Meanwhile, SEC stressed out that Rappler can still continue their operation because the decision is not yet “final and executory”.
