An online sportswriter was charged with 11 counts of libel before the Quezon City Regional Trial Court for posting in his Twitter account several disparaging and malevolent comments against Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Commissioner Chito Narvasa.
Charged was Edmund “Snow” Badua, a contributor of online sports magazine Spin.ph.
Assistant Prosecutor Marvelous Madamba found probable cause to indict Badua in court.
In his complaint-affidavit, Narvasa said that the respondent started posting in his Twitter account “@snowbadua,” several derogatory and malicious remarks against him when he was stripped of his accreditation, access to restricted areas of venues where games, league and social events are held, as well as access to PBA officials and personnel.
