The youth group conveys concern about the AFP-Dito telecommunications pact
A group of young people are concerned about the Philippine Armed Forces (AFP) deal with Dito Telecommunity that allows the China-backed telecommunications company to build cell towers inside military bases.
The DND and LFS agreement with Dito Telecommunity is alarming; it is as if our national security officials are forcing an amnesia on our sovereignty issues with China, said Youth Chairman Akbayan Dr. RJ Naguit.
Why is Dito insisting on building its cell towers at our military bases and why does the military allow this? he asked.
The group joined calls to investigate the AFP deal with Davao-based businessman Dennis Uys Dito Telecommunity, a joint venture between Udenna Corp and Chelsea Logistics and Beijing-led China Telecom to erect 10,000 cell towers over the next five years. .
Dito Telecommunity was initially granted a 25-year franchise by Congress in July 2019 while the deal with AFP was still under review.
Naguit asked why the military has allowed this telecom to build cell towers inside its camps.
Other countries like Australia and Japan have already taken action against Chinese telcos accused of spying on their domain, why can’t we do the same if it jeopardizes Filipino data? he said.
Akbayan Youth asked the Senate Committee on National Defense to hear Senator Risa Hontivero’s resolution and investigate the military deal.
Our lawmakers need to look at the potential threats this could pose and not just take the floor on Ditos, Naguit said.
Department of Defense (DND) Secretary Delfin Lorenzana recently signed the contract despite security concerns regarding the use of cell sites inside the camps.
