When a reporter said some members of the media did not laugh at Duterte's statement, Panelo said they just did not get the President's humor.

"I think the end goal of government is to try to make our team lose focus, affect moral, but in the end the mission of journalism, especially Rappler, has never been stronger", she said. "You violate the laws on tax evasion and you will be prosecuted", Panelo, also the chief presidential legal counsel, argued. "If the judiciary finds probable cause for an information filed, then we have to respect the law on the matter", Panelo said.

In January 2018, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of the Philippines revoked Rappler's license of incorporation, while Ressa continues to be the target of an increasingly hostile, gender-targeted hate campaign created to undermine her credibility and the legitimacy of Rappler's reporting.

"It's a question of tax evasion".

Ressa and Rappler have come under heavy fire for alleged "biased reporting" particularly against the government, with President Rodrigo "Rody" Duterte once describing the online agency as a "fake news outlet".

Panelo said Malacañang will "never interfere with the function of the judiciary" as well as the other branches of government.

He, however, said Ressa may be acquitted if she can prove that the charges filed against her are baseless. The charges are "part of the Duterte administration's campaign to harass, threaten and intimidate critics", said Human Rights Watch Philippines researcher Carlos Conde. He added, "Everyone is entitled to the presumption of innocence and that includes everybody including Ms. Ressa".

In March, the Securities and Exchange Commission revoked Rappler's operating license for violating foreign ownership rules.

The government accuses Rappler Holdings Corp, Ressa and the site's accountant of failing to pay taxes on 2015 bond sales that it alleges netted gains of 162.5 million pesos (RM12.52 million). But global and local rights groups have estimated a higher figure of about 12,000 deaths.

Ressa was overseas when the charges against Rappler were first announced, but she vowed to return to the Philippines and fight them, even if that meant doing so from a prison cell. "But the more they do things like this, the more we're going to do investigative reports".
