OFFICIAL STATEMENT: Death Threats Published Online vs PRRD

Malacañang Park, Manila — The Presidential Security Group (PSG) ensures the safety of the President and the seat of government at all times, and at all costs. This mandate encompasses not only physical protection but also grave threats coming from the cyber environment.

 

PSG recognizes the fact that digital media platforms are being used by security threat groups against the President and the government. As such, PSG will continuously work with the law enforcement agencies, such as the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and Philippine National Police (PNP), to monitor and apprehend those who are responsible for such acts.

 

To date, arrests had been made to some suspects posting grave threats to the President on their social media accounts, which may constitute a violation of Article 142 (Inciting to Sedition) and Article 282 (Grave Threats) of the Revised Penal Code in relation to Section 6 of Republic Act No. 10175 (Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012).

 

As we fight this pandemic, may we choose to utilize social media platforms to make useful contributions and not violate any law in expressing personal views and opinions. PSG will not take lightly any threat made to the President and his family. Anyone who violates will be held liable and will be dealt with in accordance with the law.

 

PSG also recognizes and appreciates all concerned netizens who continue to make valuable contributions in protecting the President, and the nation as a whole.

  • Please do everything to protect our beloved PPRD. Philippines is now in a much better place since he became the president. The 20% who don’t support him will do their best to try to bring him down. Mabuhay ka PPRD! There are 80% Philippine population who love you.
