Sinusulong ni Manila Rep. Bienvenido Abante Jr. na i-ban ang TikTok at iba pang application na may koneksyon sa China.

Ito’y dahil sa hidwaan sa pagitan ng Pilipinas at China dahil sa agawan ng teritoryo sa West Philippine Sea.

“With the rising tension between China and the Philippines, the government must take positive preemptive action to ensure that we protect our citizens from manipulation and misinformation campaigns using social media––from any foreign adversary country,” saad ni Abante.

Sa ilalim ng Foreign Adversary Controlled Applications Regulation Act na inihain ni Abante, posible umanong isa ang TikTok sa mga mga apps na ma-ban sa ‘Pinas.

49 million ang active user ng TikTok sa Pilipinas.

“The proposed bill regulates conduct rather than targeting the content of speech. The provisions in this proposed bill focus on national security threats and an application’s ownership by a foreign adversary,” lahad pa ni Abante.

“The primary reason why I am proposing this bill is for our country to be watchful of foreign adversary countries infiltrating our communication infrastructure and making a mockery of our cybersecurity and intelligence,” aniya pa.
