Nasa huli ang pagsisisi! Ralph Recto: PH security at risk with entry of China Telecom
Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto called on the government to be wary of Mislatel Consortium as the third telecommunications player in the country.
The Batangas politiko called Mislatel’s selection as third telco player as “good news at first glance.”
But Recto said there are security concerns over the involvement of China Telecom with Mislatel.
“Walang masamang paalalahanan ang mga pinuno ng bansa na pag-aralang muli ang desisyong papasukin ang 3rd telco na bagama’t Pilipino ang majority owner (Udenna Corp.) ay pag-aari naman ng Chinese government (China Telecom) ang kasosyo,” he said.
“Tunay ang nakaambang panganib sa seguridad ng bansa kung papayagan ito kaya’t kailangang pag-usapan ito ng liderato ng Pilipinas, kasama ang mga eksperto sa ICT, maging ang Department of National Defense,” Recto added.
He also said it’s better to be careful now instead of regretting the decision later.
“Mas mabuting maging maingat kaysa magsisi sa bandang huli,” he said.
