Warrant of arrest out on Neri Naig-Miranda for Instagram post
A regram is what you call the method of reposting someone else’s Instagram photos. It’s a quick way of spreading information and making it viral, however, in worst case scenarios, it can also land you in court.
Such was the case of of actress Neri Naig-Miranda, the wife of Parokya ni Edgar vocalist Chito Miranda when she regrammed or reposted an Instagram post of Star Magic road manager Danilyn Nunga.
In a report by Inquirer.net, Nunga posted on her Instagram account in April 2015 a photo of Clarence Taguiam and Donna Marie Go and described them as bogus sellers of GoPro Hero3 action camera. Miranda then regrammed Nunga’s photo with the same message.
Taguiam and Go, who then learned about the post, denied that they sold a camera to Nunga and pursued a criminal complaint against the two. Although the Instagram posts were already taken down, Judge Ricky Jones Macabaya of the Regional Trial Court Branch 5 in Cebu City, has issued arrest warrants for Nunga and Miranda to face the charges in court.
According to Cebu City Prosecutor’s Office, Miranda was equally liable because she didn’t verify whether Nunga’s message was true or not.
Nunga and Miranda were charged with violations of Republic Act No. 10175 or the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012.
