23 Aug Voter Database Leak to be Included in Impeachment Case vs Bautista
The matter of the voter data leakage which occurred before the 2016 elections will be included in the impeachment complaint against Commission on Elections (Comelec) Chairman Andres Bautista which will be filed in the House of Representatives on Wednesday.
The complainants say that Bautista should be held criminal liability for the hacking of the Comelec website that led to the breach.
The National Privacy Commission (NPC) who discovered the leak, said that Bautista had violated Sections 11, 20 and 21 of Republic Act 10173 or the Data Privacy Act.
