A House leader has condemned the reported wiretapping of the conversation between Chinese and Philippine officials regarding the “new model agreement” on the Ayungin Shoal in the West Philippine Sea as a desperate attempt to muddle the issue.

Deputy Majority Leader and Tingog Rep. Jude Acidre emphasized the need for a thorough investigation into the origins and motives behind the alleged wiretapping incident earlier exposed by Defense Secretary Gilbert Teodoro.

Why do they appear? This kind of misinformation or wiretapping? It goes to shows that this is an act of desperation, what, to muddle the entire issue,” Acidre pointed out.

Deputy Majority Leader and Isabela 6th District Rep. Faustino Dy V called the alleged wiretapping incident as a breach of trust and a violation of Philippine laws.

Dy echoed Teodoro’s sentiments, stressing that whoever is responsible for the wiretapping or recording of the conversation should face consequences for their actions.

Those responsible for wiretapping or recording this conversation if it happened, they should be expelled or deported from our country or they should answer to our laws because what they did is illegal,” Dy said.

Regarding the next steps, Dy deferred to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) to handle the investigation.

“Again, I will leave it to our DFA on how to proceed the investigation on this matter,” he said.
