card registration


Senator Tito Sotto III yesterday said he is pushing for the registration of pre-paid SIM cards following the bombing of a passenger bus in Makati City Tuesday, which killed five passengers and injured 14 others.   

Sotto, who was in Bacolod City yesterday as guest of honor during the launching of the Barkada Kontra Droga seminar at the University of St. La Salle, said when he was chairman of the Senate Committee on Public Services in 2000, he called on the government to have all pre-paid SIM cards registered.

He asked the National Telecommunications Commission to come up with a directive asking that pre-paid SIM cards be registered but many opposed it, he said.moremoremore
