I am against Cybercrime Prevention Act

Simple because it violates our basic rights such as freedom of speech, equal protection of the law, right to privacy and more... I thin they should check the provisions of the Cybercrime Prevention Act before they enforce it.

Freedom of speech - no to cybercrime law

The implementation of Republic Act 10175, or the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012, will push through on Wednesday after the Supreme Court decided to defer action on various petitions questioning its constitutionality.

The high court deferred the deliberation on the controversial law due to the absence of several justices. The petitions are set to be deliberated again next Tuesday.

Only three of the justices who were absent were named. They are Associate Justices Lucas Bersamin, Diosdado Peralta and Mariano Del Castillo, who are all abroad on official business.

So far, seven petitions from various organizations have been filed with the high court, all claiming that several provisions of the Cybercrime Prevention Act violates the 1987Constitution specifically those on freedom of speech, equal protection of the law, right to privacy, illegal searches and seizures, double jeopardy, and libel.
