Petition for Certiorari and Prohibition on Republic Act 10175 #Cybercrimelaw Filed by Atty JJ Disini & 4 other taxpayers

Jose Jesus M. Disini, Jr., Rowena S. Disini, Lianne Ivy P. Medina, Janette Toral, and Ernesto Sonido, Jr., urged “the high court to immediately issue a temporary restraining order against the Department of Justice (DOJ), Department of Interior and Local Govt. (DILG), Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT), Philippine National Police (PNP), and National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) from implementing Sec. 4 (c) [4], 6, 7, 12, and 19 of the law.”

In an ABS-CBN report, petitioners raised the following grounds in assailing the law:

A. The Cybercrime Act violates free speech

B. Sections 6 and 7 of the Cybercrime Act violate the double jeopardy and equal protections clauses of the Constitution

C. The real time data collection of traffic data violates the right to privacy and the right against unreasonable searches and seizure

D. The Respondent DOJ Secretary’s take down authority under Sec. 19 of the Cybercrime Act violates due process and is an undue delegation of legislative authority
