China Backed Telco in AFP Military bases.
The agreement between the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and a 40-percent China-owned telecommunications company (telco) is unconstitutional, Cagayan de Oro City Rep. Rufus Rodriguez said yesterday.
Rodriguez said Section 3 of Article 2 of the 1987 Constitution provides that the AFP is the protector of the people and the state.
“Its goal is to secure the sovereignty of the state and the integrity of the national territory. The deal allowing Dito Telecom to establish its facilities inside military camps will violate our national security and endanger our sovereignty. It is therefore unconstitutional and should not be allowed,” he said.
