Atty. Glenn Chong, who discloses alleged election fraud in 2016 claims that Facebook censors him: “Maari kayong kasuhan sa paglabag ng Civil Code of the Philippines”


After the Senate Probe on alleged election cheating in the last Presidential elections, several Facebook fan pages and users tried to spread the video of the said investigation on their social media accounts.

Most of the videos featured Anti-Election fraud advocate and former Biliran Representative Atty Glenn Chong, who disclosed some pieces of evidence that would prove that there’s a conspiracy happened between COMELEC, Smartmatic and Liberal Party of the Philippines in 2016.

However, most Facebook users who shared the said videos claimed that Facebook automatically removed their post because it was considered as “spam” by its system. Some suspected that Facebook is trying to censor the said Senate investigation.

Because of this, Glenn Chong who was alarmed for what happened to some Facebook users wrote a letter to the representatives of the said social media giant to the Philippines.

In his post addressed to Facebook Philippines, Chong said that the system of the mentioned social media platform deleted his video which made to defend himself from the accusations of Rappler.
According to him, Rappler twisted its report during his encounter with Sen. Franklin Drilon and believes that the social media website and official fact-checker of Facebook in the Philippines didn’t report the whole truth.

Chong insisted that he has the right to defend himself from the accusations against him and deleting his video against Rappler was against the constitution of the Philippines.
He also warned Facebook that if ever that his post has been deleted again, he would not hesitate to sue them for violating the Article 32 of the Civil Code of the Philippines “which provides for damages against the offended party when any private individual, directly or indirectly obstructs, defeats, violates or in any manner impedes or impairs any of the following constitutional rights and liberties of another person xxx (2) Freedom of speech xxx.”

Chong also urged his followers, to gather screenshots of the notification that they would receive from Facebook if ever that they’re going to delete the said video again.

He said that the notification from Facebook can be used as an evidence against the social media giant if ever that he’s going to bring the case to the court.
You can read his whole version of his post below:

TINANGGAL NG FACEBOOK ANG ORIGINAL POST NG VIDEO NA ITO.

TO FACEBOOK PHILIPPINES:

I wrote last night an article sharing the post of DECONSTRUCTED MEDIA which you took down this morning. In that post, I explained why rappler.com has engaged in spreading fake news by twisting its report concerning the questions of Sen. Franklin Drilon to me. I explained why the rappler article failed to disclose the full truth.

When you took down the post of DECONSTRUCTED MEDIA, along with it came down my legitimate explanation of the events. I am asking that you restore that portion because that is legitimate. I am entitled to answer unfair attacks against my person and integrity. Rappler.com or any media entity for that matter has absolutely no license to attack me without meriting an appropriate response from my end. This video forms part and parcel of my defense against these attacks. Now, if you take this down again, I will be compelled to haul you to court along with rappler.com.

Any restraint against legitimate expression of public interest issues (the main issue in contention here is the serial cheating of our past three elections) is a violation of Article 32 of the Civil Code of the Philippines which provides for damages against the offended party when any private individual, directly or indirectly obstructs, defeats, violates or in any manner impedes or impairs any of the following constitutional rights and liberties of another person xxx (2) Freedom of speech xxx.

Since you are operating within the jurisdiction of the Republic of the Philippines, you come within the jurisdiction of our laws and courts.

I am not looking for quarrel. Just respect us and the advocacy we are fighting for.

PARA SA MGA NAGPOST NG ISYU TUNGKOL SA HEARING KAHAPON SA SENADO AT SA ISYU NG DAYAAN SA HALALAN, KUMUHA PO KAYO NG PICTURE NG INYONG POST O SHARE. KAPAG TINANGGAL ITO NG FACEBOOK, KUMUHA ULI KAYO NG PICTURE NG NOTICE NA TINANGGAL ITO. MAGAGAMIT NATIN YAN KUNG SAKA-SAKALING KASUHAN ANG FACEBOOK SA PAGLABAG NG ARTICLE 32 NG CIVIL CODE OF THE PHILIPPINES. MAGKAKAPERA PA KAYO FOR THE DAMAGES SISINGILIN NATIN SA KANILA FOR VIOLATING OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS.


Facebook Philippines is not yet releasing a statement on the sudden deletion of several videos featuring Glenn Chong.
