Toby Tiangco renews push for SIM registration bill amid spam texts

Toby Tiangco offered a previously rejected law that could have ended the current deluge of spam text messages much earlier.

The Navotas congressman is referring to the SIM Card Registration Bill vetoed by former President Rodrigo Duterte.

“Dahil lumalaganap ang mobile phone-aided crimes tulad ng scam text messages o voice phishing, nakita natin ang kahalagahan na mairehistro ang mga SIM card na ating gamit. Sa pamamagitan nito, mas madaling ma-trace ang mga scammer at mas maiiwasan ang data breach,” the politiko said.

“Makakatulong din ang pagpaparehistro ng SIM card sa paglutas ng mga krimeng ginagamitan ng mobile phone,” he added, reviving interest for the measure.
