DOJ to lead implementation of SIM card law
The Department of Justice (DOJ) will be one of the leading implementers of the SIM (subsriber identity module) Registration Act as soon as it hits its target registrants as it will help the DOJ in the investigation of different crimes.
Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla said it was very important that they hit their target of 70 percent (117.6 million) SIM card users in the country because it would play a vital role in their investigations.
“It’s very important that the SIM Registration Act is operable already because please remember there are so many scams using cell phones, kidnapping, extortion. Activities of terrorist organizations that are passing through prepaid anonymous cards,” Remulla said in an interview on April 26.
“It will help us navigate dangerous waters so to speak because of the use of communication as a tool for crimes and criminal activity,” he added.
