MFN Legal Briefing: Philippines’ SIM Card Registration Act

A solidarity network for Southeast Asian movements for freedom of expression is the Media Freedom Network (MFN).

The SIM Enrollment Act 2022 of the Philippines was as of late proclaimed by the Congress of the Philippines in the midst of reaction from basic freedoms and common society associations, work associations, and media houses on the proposed changes held inside the new regulation. However, SIM card registration is now common practice in many nations, and the Philippines joins the ASEAN nations in mandating some form of SIM card registration within its borders.

For what reason is SIM enrollment such an issue for basic freedoms and writers in the Philippines and how might we as media professionals safeguard ourselves from the dangers related with the new SIM enlistment regulation?

The MFN Legal Briefing will be held at the Media Freedom Network (MFN): The SIM Registration Act will be implemented on Wednesday, May 31 in collaboration with Altermidya and the Junk SIM Registration Network to provide media professionals in Southeast Asia with crucial information and context and to answer your burning questions.
