Alleged destab plot came from hacked email account of an LP senator’s staff – Sen. Aquino

MANILA, Philippines — Liberal Party senators revealed that several email accounts of their staff have been hacked.

They were, in particular, the staff of LP president Kiko Pangilinan and Senator Bam Aquino.

According to Senator Aquino, four hacking incidents happened when their email address was used to send falsified information on destabilization plot against President Rodrigo Duterte.

“We were able to uncover that some of our Senate staff had been hacked, that some emails purportedly from their accounts have been used to send falsified emails to other individuals,” said Aquino.

Some of the emails are regarding the alleged investigation on DDS and LP media plan to destroy President Duterte.

It also suggested that Vice President Leni Robredo and former President Benigno Aquino III were involved in the said planning.

Senator Aquino said this means there are groups who want to pin the opposition bloc on the alleged destabilization plot.

“I hope the administration is not behind this, but clearly meron pong grupo na gusto pong magkagulo po tayo  sa ating bansa (there are groups who want to create chaos in the country) because they are pertaining to destabilization plots. They are pertaining to things na wala naman pong kinalaman ang (that are not related to the) Liberal Party,” said Aquino.

The LP senator believes these may be the sources of the reported destabilization where the LP is said to be involved.

The LP senators sought already the assistance of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) on the hacking incidents. — Nel Maribojoc | UNTV News & Rescue

MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte did not fail to mention his continuing campaign against corruption in his Third State of the Nation Address.

This time, he issued another warning against government agencies that do not adhere to the government policy in making business in the Philippines easier and simpler.

The Chief Executive also warned the government agencies particularly under the Executive branch of government which was reported to have the most number of red tape complaints.

“I particularly call the attention of the agencies with the [most] number of red tape-related reports from the public. Make your services truly customer-friendly. Our people deserve efficient, effective, and responsive government services. They deserve nothing less,” the President said.

He also directed all local government units to implement the law on ease of doing business and make the process simpler.

Meanwhile, President Duterte also appealed to his friends and supporters in government whom he appointed in office.

He said he had to fire several high ranking officials who were close to him over allegations of corruption.

“I value friendship, make no mistake about it. But it has its limits. This is a lonely place I am hemmed in. Do not make it lonelier by forcing me to end our friendship because you gave me the reason to end it,” he said.

Temporary setback

Meanwhile, despite the non-ratification by of the Bangsamoro Organic Law by the House of Representatives, the Chief Executive mentioned he will sign the law within 48 hours or two days.

He said he wants to study it carefully before signing it.

“When the approved version is transmitted and received by my office… the law has been passed actually and I intend to… give me 48 hours to sign it and ratify the law. [applause] Babasahin ko pa bago ko pipirmahan. Baka may isiningit kayo diyan na hindi maganda para sa — para sa ibang tao.”

Meanwhile, according to the Presidential Communications Operations Office, President Duterte will go back to Davao City tonight.

The Chief Executive’s next public engagement is scheduled on Wednesday in his hometown. — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News & Rescue

“I think ang hinahanap ng tao hindi rin yung mga lumang mukha at lumang pangalan. Naghahanap rin po sila ng mga bagong mukha at bagong pangalan,” Aquino said.

(I think people are not looking for old faces and old names. They are searching for new faces and new names.)
