The Presidential Security Group (PSG) encouraged the public not to post online threats against President Rodrigo Duterte.
This, as Colonel Jesus Durante III, the commander of the Presidential Security Group, on Wednesday said that any person will be held liable if they threatened to harm or kill the person, especially if they threatened to harm or kill the President of the Philippines.
He added that the Presidential Security Group will be closely working with the law enforcement agencies in order to monitor and arrest those who were responsible for posting online threats against any person who violated the law.
The statement from the PSG chief came after the National Bureau of Investigation filed a case against Ronnel Mas, a teacher who used a poser account and posted on social media a purported offer of PHP 50 million to those who could kill Duterte.
Earlier, Rizaldy Jaymalin, the agent-in-charge of the NBI Dagupan District Office, denied that the bureau was being selective following the arrest of a public school teacher, saying that the bureau with the law enforcement agencies. Jaymalin also said that the bureau was also going after social media users who apparently posted online threats against Vice President Leni Robredo.
To date, Ronnel Mas, a 25-year-old social studies teacher, and Ronald Quiboyen, a 40-year-old construction worker and a habal-habal driver, were arrested by the National Bureau of Investigation for allegedly offering reward money to those who could kill the President.
