Here are key facts about the cyber libel case that businessman Wilfredo Keng filed against Rappler

Keng filed his complaint in October 2017, more than 5 years after Rappler’s story was published. For libel, cases should be filed within one year.

Rappler merely corrected a typographical error in the story in February 2014. No substantial changes were made.

In addition, the Anti-Cybercrime Act was signed into law only in September 2012, months after the story was published. Laws are not retroactive. –
