Statement of Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Laciedia:
On the hoax text advisories on bomb threats that circulated on January 26, 2011
[Released on January 26, 2011]
In times of tragedy there are sometimes unscrupulous elements eager to spread unease and confusion for selfish ends.
Be assured your government is balancing accessibility of information with our duty to protect public security and order. There are cases of hoaxes about so-called security threats and we would like to assure the people that all measures to attend to security concerns are in place.
