UE Dawn, the official student publication of the University of the East (UE), issued an official statement on April 5, 2020 denouncing how the publication’s Editor in Chief, Joshua B. Molo, was  allegedly threatened with a libel case if he didn't "publicly apologize” for criticizing the national government on social media.

According to the publication’s announcement published on their Facebook page, Molo was brought to the barangay hall of San Fernando Sur, Cabiao, Nueva Ecija after he "criticized his former high school teachers."

Rappler further reports that Molo, currently a UE student, posted online about his dismay against the lack of action of the national government, which his former high school teachers commented on, expressing the opposite sentiments. This later led his former high school teachers to report him to the barangay for alleged libelous content. A libel case would allegedly be filed against Molo should he refuse to issue a public apology.

RedWire, an independent student-run publication from UE, also reported that Molo was threatened to be picked up by the police should he post any more criticisms against the government.
