/ 02:12 PM September 30, 2014



MANILA, Philippines–Malacañang on Tuesday said it supports proposals to require the registration of prepaid mobile phone SIM in a bid to address kidnap-for-ransom cases.

“According to NTC (National Telecommunications Commission) commissioner Gamaliel Cordoba, it is preferable that a law be passed requiring SIM card registration,” Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. told Palace reporters.

“The Executive branch has manifested support for proposed bills that are now being discussed in Congress,” he said.


The proposal was reiterated on Tuesday afternoon by anti-kidnapping crusader Teresita Ang-See who was testifying at a Senate hearing.
