Episode 2: What are the Law Punishing  Cyber bullying ?

Laws that apply to cyberbullying

Aside from RA 10627, or the 2013 anti-bullying act, “Republic Act 7610, also known as the Special Protection of Children Against Abuse, Exploitation, and Discrimination Act,” can also be used to protect minors.

ARTICLE VI- Other Forms of Abuse

Section 10: Other Acts of Neglect, Abuse, Cruelty, or Exploitation, and Other Conditions Harmful to the Child’s Development. –

(a) Any person who commits any other acts of child abuse, cruelty, or exploitation or is responsible for other conditions prejudicial to the child’s development, including those covered by Article 59 of Presidential Decree No. 603, as amended, but not covered by the Revised Penal Code, as amended, shall face the penalty of prison mayor for the minimum period.

The provisions of RA 10175 or the cybercrime law may apply to adults. As we mentioned in the first paragraph, online libel, identity theft, and unauthorized access to online accounts are all issues.

The Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act of 2009, or RA 9995, also applies. This is true if the perpetrators use intimate personal images and videos to blackmail, extort, or harass the victims.
