STATEMENT OF ATTY. VICTOR RODRIGUEZ, CHIEF OF STAFF OF PRESIDENTIAL ASPIRANT FERDINAND ‘BONGBONG’ MARCOS JR., ON THE CALL FOR INVESTIGATION OF THE ILLEGAL USE OF EMERGENCY ALERT NOTIFICATION TEXT CONTAINING PRO-BONGBONG MARCOS NARRATIVES

Press Releases
6 October 2021

We support the swift action of the NTC calling for an investigation of the illegal use of the emergency alert notification text containing pro-Bongbong Marcos narratives.

The illegal use of the emergency blast was done at a time when Bongbong Marcos was filing his CoC and is viewed as among the many demolition jobs unleashed by those who obviously want to frustrate his candidacy.

BBM and his family received similar alert notifications. We should not tolerate any group or groups’ underhanded moves to trivialize this very special tool meant to forewarn every single Filipino of an impending, actual, or post-disaster event or scenario.

To those behind this despicable deed, we appeal that you do not please mess with a functioning government system that is purposely meant to save lives just so you may advance your agenda of derailing the candidacy of presidential aspirant Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr.
