On the Awarding of the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize to Maria Ressa

Ms. Maria Ressa deserves our congratulations for being one of the awardees of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize – the first Filipino to have this distinction.

But more than the prestige that comes with the award, is the responsibility of continuing to uphold the freedom of expression – the reason for the award.

It is hoped that the Nobel Peace Prize will further inspire the responsible practice of journalism for the good of all.
