Bishop hits attempts to suppress press freedom

A Catholic bishop has joined calls for greater press freedom in the country and deplored actions to suppress it.

Bishop Gerardo Alminaza of San Carlos said the Church promotes freedom of the press as he stressed the importance of truth in journalism.

“Promoting the truth is promoting life. We join the call of respecting press freedom, respecting the truth and respecting human life,” Alminaza said in a statement to mark World Press Freedom Day.

The prelate also thanked the journalists who continue to fight for the truth “amidst the darkness”.
