SA Feb. 5, Tuesday, ay expired na ang temporary restraining order ng Supreme Court laban sa mga kumukwestiyon sa cyber crime law na ipinasa ng Congress at pinirmahan naman ni President Noynoy.

Kung walang extension na ibibigay ang SC, puwede nang ipakulong ang sinomang lalabag sa batas na ito.

Ayon sa batas na ito ay puwedeng kalkalin ng Department of Justice (DOJ) at kapulisan ang laman ng ating electronic devise katulad ng computer  nang hindi na kailangan ang court order.

Kung sa palagay ng sinoman – mga politiko, taong gobyerno at pribadong citizen – ay may sinabi tayong masama laban sa kanila, tiyak na ipa-kukulong tayo nang walang imbestigasyon o due process.

Puwede na ring buksan ang mga banking transaction at imbestigahan ka at ikulong agad sa hinalang may pera kang lagpas sa iyong income tax return. Hahalungkatin din ng DOJ at ng mga pulis ang iyong mga utang sa bangko at ikukulong ka nang walang paliwanag.

“Would the collection [of traffic data] also include electronic banking transactions,” Supreme Court Associate Justice Mariano Del Castillo asked Solicitor General Francis Jardeleza during last Tuesday’s oral argument.

Jardeleza said “yes.”

“Won’t this be a violation of the Bank Secrecy Law?” asked Del Castillo.

The government lawyer said no because the provision is about “hot pursuit of a hacker.”

Del Castillo questioned the government lawyer why Congress did not define what is a traffic data that can be collected without intervention from the courts.

Jardeleza said he did not know why it was not clearly defined.

Under Section 12, traffic data “refers only to the communication’s origin, destination, route, time, date, size, duration or type of underlying service but not content nor identities.”
