Netizens cry foul as Guv Gwen Garcia threatens to hunt down Cebu gov’t critics


What a shame!

A now-viral tweet quoted Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia as saying that a special unit in the provincial capitol is dedicated to “trace” anyone who criticizes the local government online regarding their response to the coronavirus outbreak.

People were quick to blast the perverted idea, calling it an attack on freedoms.

“If they had such a team, why not put it into use at a covid patient contact tracing program instead?,” user @HeySyao tweeted.

Others said Garcia should not be a crybaby at the expense of the people.

“Public authorities should not be onion skinned, they are accountable to people as well. They are always under scrutiny and that’s alright,” another added.
