Nikka G. Valenzuela reports:

A Manila court has dismissed the cybercrime case against an information technology graduate who was charged in connection with the hacking of the Commission of Elections (Comelec) website in 2016—the biggest private data leak in Philippine history.

Paul Loui Biteng was cleared of criminal charges after the prosecution failed to prove guilt beyond reasonable doubt, according to the ruling by Manila Regional Trial Court Branch 32 Judge Thelma Bunyi-Medina.
