Salvacion, Palo, Leyte, on August 11 by Warrant of Arrest (WOA) for violation of Section 4 (c) 4 (Cyber Libel) of RA 10175 (Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012), issued Presiding Judge of Branch 8, RTC in Tacloban City.
On the same date, the Top 8 MWP identified as Alvin Prado Anticamara, 38, a system engineer, was also arrested in Brgy. Inayawan, Cebu City, under WOA issued by Presiding Judge, RTC, 7th Judicial Region, Branch 14 for violation of four counts of RA 9995 (Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act of 2009).
