Magkakalat ng fake news makukulong ng 2 buwan, multang P1M

By: - 03/25/2020

DALAWANG buwang kulong at hanggang P1 milyong multa ang ipaparusa sa mga magkakalat ng fake news kaugnay ng coronavirus disease 2019.

Kasama ang probisyong ito sa Bayanihan to Heal as One Act of 2020 (Republic Act 11469) na inaprubahan ng Kongreso at pinirmahan ni Pangulong Duterte upang labanan ang COVID-19.

Ayon kay House Deputy Majority Leader at Bagong Henerasyon Rep. Bernadette Herrera ito ay nasa Section 6 ng RA 11469 na dapat umanong magsilbing babala sa nagpapakalat ng fake news.

“Purveyors of fake news will] be punished with imprisonment of two months or a fine of not less than P10,000 but not more than P1 million or both such imprisonment and fine at the discretion of the court,” ani Herrera.

Nakalilikha umano ng panik at pagkalito ang mga fake news na lalong nagpapahirap sa mga hakbang na ginagawa ng gobyerno.

“Individuals or groups creating, perpetuating, or spreading false information regarding the COVID-19 crisis on social media and other platforms, such information having no valid or beneficial effect on the population, and are clearly geared to promote chaos, panic, anarchy, fear, or confusion; and those participating in cyber incidents that make use or take advantage of the current crisis situation to prey on the public through scams, phishing, fraudulent emails, or other similar acts.”

Isa sa kumalat ang balita na magsasara ang lahat ng palengke at grocery ng dalawang linggo.
