A Philippines court gave the go-ahead to journalist Maria Ressa Friday to travel to Norway and receive her Nobel Peace Prize.

The Court of Appeals allowed the Rappler CEO to stay in Oslo for five days from Dec.8 to Dec.13, during which she will attend the ceremony on Dec.10.

Ressa, 58, a co-founder of the news website Rappler, and Russian journalist Dmitry Muratov were awarded the prize in October for their efforts to safeguard freedom of expression, which is a precondition for democracy and lasting peace.?
