NPC to file charges vs governor who smashed radio man’s mouth with mike

06/10/2011
The conscience of the Liberty of the Press is revolting over the act of Kalinga Gov. Jocel Baac in smashing a microphone on the mouth of radio commentator Jerome Tabanganay while the latter was wrapping up his “Agenda on Tuesday” radio program inside the studio booth of dzRK.

In defense of the freedom of the press and of expression which is among the purposes of its creation, the National Press Club (NPC) will file administrative, civil and criminal cases against the governor to serve the public good that this act should not be repeated by any high official of the government.

The NPC will file a complaint for administrative violations against Baac for conduct prejudicial to the best interest of the service and for oppression, both punishable with dismissal from the service.
