Philippines goes full Big Brother and will require all SIM card be registered.

The Philippines just enacted Republic Act 11934 which prevents anonymity of any cell phone users. This includes “burner phones”. This effectively turns the Philippines into a police state as this new law could be used to target specific individuals or groups for political reasons. Here is the relevant section in the act:

The state shall promote responsibility in the use of Subscriber Identity Modules (SIM) and provide law enforcement agencies tools to resolve crimes which involve the utilization and a platform to deter the commission of wrongdoings.

Towards this end the state shall require the registration of SIM by all users.
