PCOO chief claims government respects freedom of the press
by PNA release

The head of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) said the government will continue to respect media freedom in the country as the Philippines joined the international community in observing World Press Freedom Day on May 3.

“Asahan niyo po na patuloy na irerespeto ng Duterte administration ang press freedom sa bansa, taliwas sa mga alegasyon ng iilan,” Sec. Martin Andanar said last week.

Among the efforts to prove this is the creation of the Presidential Task Force on Media Security or PTFoMS, approved and signed by President Rodrigo R. Duterte on the first month of his term, Andanar said.

The PTFoMS was created through Administrative Order 1 to address media killings and harassments.

Andanar said the PCOO will continue campaigning against disinformation and the proliferation of fake news.

“Tayo naman po ay kaisa ng lahat ng mediamen sa bansa at sa buong mundo sa pagsusulong at pangangalaga sa karapatan sa press freedom,” he added.

World Press Freedom Day was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in 1993.

In his message, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said a free press is essential for peace, justice, sustainable development, and human rights.

“No democracy is complete without access to transparent and reliable information. It is the cornerstone for building fair and impartial institutions, holding leaders accountable and speaking truth to power,” he said.
