Edu Punay of The Philippine Star reports that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is set to "create a new office, to be manned by 100 state prosecutors trained in cyber forensics, to prosecute cybercrimes identified in the newly signed Republic Act 10175 or Cybercrime Prevention Act."

 

The report quoted DOJ Secretary Leila de Lima, who said yesterday, October 1, that her office "would also hold constant dialogue with key stakeholders to address issues and concerns on the implementation of the law, starting with a multisectoral forum on October 9 at the DOJ."

 

The report noted that there are now seven petitions seeking to stop implementation of certain provisions of RA 10175. The report explained: "The petitioners, composed of a group of lawmakers, bloggers, members of academe and students, questioned the constitutionality of sections 4, 5 and 6 of the law."
