San Pedro Councilor Jimbo Ambayec calls out barangay for violating privacy laws
Why would a barangay release the records of what is supposed to be private proceedings?
San Pedro Councilor Jimbo Ambayec raised this question as he shared a post that featured the minutes of mediation proceedings in Barangay San Antonio.
In his Facebook post, Ambayec said this was a culpable violation of the confidentiality of private information.
The records of the barangay justice body are supposed to be private, he said.
He described the move as a total disgrace and disrespect.
So who would be held accountable, if any?
“Pamahalaang Barangay ng San Antonio, naiintindihan nyo ba ang ginawa nyo o ng ilan sa mga empleyado nyo? This is a CULPABLE VIOLATION OF THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF PRIVATE INFORMATION. Pribado ang mga records ng Katarungang Pambarangay, hindi ito katulad ng mga Vouchers, Checke at Bank Account ng Barangay na maaaring isa-publiko.
Another total disgrace and disrespect! SHAME!” Ambayec posted.
