The Philippine Press Institute objects to the proposed
. . .ACT PROTECTING INDIVIDUAL PERSONAL INFORMATION IN INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS IN THE GOVERNMENT AND THE PRIVATE SECTOR, CREATING FOR THIS PURPOSE A NATIONAL PRIVACY COMMISSION, AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES
because it violates the constitutional freedoms of expression and the press.
We are not, however, closing our minds to any discussions – with your sector and any other that may want to involve itself in them – about matters involving those freedoms, especially where they become a potential subject of any legislation.
