• SC resumes voting on some provisions of Cybercrime Law

    1

    The Supreme Court (SC) will resume on Tuesday the voting on some controversial provisions of Republic Act No. 10175 or the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2013.

    There are now 15 pending petitions before the SC questioning the constitutionality of the Cybercrime Law.

    Some of the provisions which were voted upon in the SC en banc session last week were the following:

    — Section 4-C-4 which imposes penalty on internet libel;

    — Section 5 which penalizes those who try to help anyone who is planning to commit cyber offense, especially involving child pornography, unsolicited commercial communications and internet libel;

    — Section 6 which provides a higher penalty for crimes committed through information and communications technology;

    — Section 13 which provides for the preservation of computer data; and

    — Section 15 which authorizes law enforcement agencies to confiscate and examine computer data.

    The SC justices are expected to vote on Sections 7, 12 and 19 of the Cybercrime Law on Tuesday.

    Section 7 states that anyone who is penalized for violation of the Cybercrime Law can be held liable for crimes covered by the Revised Penal Code (RPC).

    Section 12 allows real time collection of computer data and Section 19 empowers the Department of Justice (DOJ) to block access on computer data if it can be found violating the Cybercrime Law. PNA

    1. ANG TANONG ANU-ANO ANG KAPARUSAHAN AYON SA BATAS NA IYAN??
      Tila may butas na naman ang batas na yan. Bakit hindi nilalagay kaagad ang minimum at maximum na kaparusahan sa bawat nilabag na kautusan. Sadyang ang mga gumagawa ng batas ay sila rin mismo naglalagay ng butas, dahil sila-sila rin naman at katulad din naman nilang mga abugago ang hahawak at hahawak ng mga kaso. Kaya sila rin magtatalo talo sa usapin.
      Ang dapat na ginagawang batas ay malinaw ang kaparusahan,,,kung pumatay ka, nanggahasa ka at pumatay, nagnakaw ka at pumatay, nagproduce ka ng mga bawal na druga…ang parusang kamatayan ay dapat malinaw at walang ng pasikot -sikot na usapin at debate sa korte. At kung lumabag sa batas ng anuman may kinalaman sa “privacy ng individual”, dapat ang pinakamababang parusa ay isang taon kulong at pagbayarin ng Php1M ang kriminal.

      Para sa SC, SANA BIGYAN NA RIN NINYO NG KAHATULAN ANG TUNGKOL SA “DAP”. Huwag sana matulad sa typhoon Yolanda ang issue na ito, NA MABILIS DIN NAGLAHO NA AT TULUYAN NG NAWALA NA PARANG BULA.
