The senator, who guested on the talk show to discuss some issues regarding the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 for which he is the author and principal sponsor, said he will be running under his own party in alliance with the ruling Liberal Party.

In the interview, Angara said some aspects of the Cybercrime Law need to be clarified or amended.

He cited in particular the measure’s provision on online libel.

Angara made it clear that retweeting or liking a libelous item is not a crime.
