Bohol Governor Arthur Yap had filed seven counts of cyberlibel complaints against social media influencer Willy Ramasola, also his staunch critic, over his Facebook posts.

Yap filed the complaints Wednesday (March 18) at the Office of the Provincial Prosecutor.

“Isip amahan sa lalawigan sakit sa akong balatian nga mosang-at ug kaso batok sa usa ka tawo nga sukad pa kaniadto walay laing buhat kung dili magsigeg batikos ug pakaulaw kanako pinaagi sa adlaw-adlaw nga postings sa facebook nga tumo-tumo ug mga bakak,” Yap said in a recorded statement he posted on Facebook.

“Sobra na ang “pagpanamastamas” sa akong ngalan, sa usa ka tawo nga nag-pangan na si Willy Ramasola. Dili nako ni siya kaila apan iyang gitunob-tunoban ang akong tawhanong katungod. Giagwanta ko kini sa dugay’ng panahon ug gitas-an ang akong pasensya og padayon kong nagtrabaho sa akong katungdanan,”he added.

Yap said it got to the point that Ramasola was no longer respectful and even harassed other provincial government employees who were honest in their work.

He said everyone under the law has the right to free speech but we have no right to insult others.

“Ang isig katawo ubos sa balaod, naay katungod sa FREE SPEECH, apan wa tay katungod nga mangbastos sa uban. Wala kita makigharong ug minaog sa iyang lebel nga magbinastos usab, apan kinahanglan nga panalipdan nato ang atong pangan tungod kay usa ra kini. Hilom ra kitang nagtrabaho ug nag-atubang sa mga problemang dala sa pandemiya para makalingkawas ang katawhang Bol-anon og di ko motogot nga naay maka guba o makadaot sa akong “gi-panumpaan” nga katungdanan isip Gobernador sa atong pinalanggang lalawigan, ” he said.

David vs Goliath

Meanwhile, Ramasola said he will answer the complaints filed by Yap adding that no amount of cases will silence him from exposing alleged anomalies in the Capitol.

“I signed up for this war. Freely.
And alangan naman ako lang ang pwede sumuntok. Expected na susuntok din yan kahit walang matatamaan. Mukhang nasaktan na siguro. And I will make him pay for this. Will expose him more. My team plans to file more cases against him,” Ramasola said in his Facebook post.

“I am just a little David fighting a Goliath in the Capitol. But I firmly believe the truth and the good will prevail over evil in the end.
So help me, God, in this battle,” he added.
