SOME government websites were hacked on Monday during the “Million People March” against pork barrel apparently as part of protest against the alleged anomalous use of the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF).
The protest march was triggered by the alleged P10-billion pork barrel and P900-million Malampaya fund scams allegedly committed by businesswoman Janet Lim Napoles involving some lawmakers.
Some of those who were victimized by the hackers are the websites of the National Historical Commission, National Telecommunications Commission, Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino, Municipality of Pikit, North Cotabato, Optical Media Board, Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, San Juan City, Talibon Bohol, Philippine Economic Zone Authority and the Sugar Regulatory Administration.
Some of the hacked websites have the message stating: “We are Pinoy Vendetta. We Don’t Die, We Multiply. Abolish the Pork Barrel, Hitman, Greetz to Darknight and Soulja Girl.”
The hackers also expressed their gratitude to President Benigno Aquino 3rd for announcing the abolition of PDAF last Friday.
However, they noted the alternative package allowing congressmen and senators to identify sponsored projects to be funded as line item in the annual budget is also paving the way for abuse by corrupt government officials in the public funds.
Because of this, they said, it is clear that pork barrel will still remain.
Likewise, they also urged President Aquino to really abolish the pork barrel system and just let the lawmakers do their law-making function.
The hackers identified themselves as the “Anonymous” who do not forgive, do not forget, feared by corrupt and supported by honest people. PNA
