Philippine journalist Maria Ressa, who was held overnight last Wednesday by the Philippines National Bureau of Investigation, calls the nation’s case against her unconstitutional, CNN reported.
Ressa is CEO of news site Rappler and has been critical of Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte.
Ressa was arrested after a "cyber libel" charge was filed against her website, based on a 2012 article. The article was headlined “CJ using SUVs of 'controversial' businessmen,” and involves the chief justice of the Philippine supreme court.
Ressa worked for CNN before she founded Rappler.
"I think it's definitely intimidation for me to spend one night in detention," she told CNN's Brian Stelter on "Reliable Sources" Sunday. "I came out of that night thinking this is now a travesty of justice."
