Michael Sy Lim was held in the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) in Camp Crame after his arrest at Leviste St in Makati city.

According to CIDG, the arrest was "in response to the request of Ms Deniece Cornejo and Atty Ferdinand Topacio as part of the CIDG Quality Assurance Support to Victims program."

Sometime last year, Lim made a blog post exposing Cornejo's medical report. Apparently, the private document came from Healthway medical, a network of mall-based clinics.

Lim expressed his disappointment over the arrest through a Tweet, pointing how people abuse "libel" to curtail press freedom.

What are your takes on this?
