To prevent a repeat of President Benigno S. Aquino III’s State-Of-Nation Address (SONA) speech being leaked to media ahead of schedule as what happened last year, Malacañang on Thursday said it was undertaking several measures to keep this year’s SONA speech under wraps until Monday, July 25.
Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda assured the public that the government was doing everything to prevent the President’s SONA speech from being prematurely leaked to anyone.
“We’ve discussed several measures on how to avoid a leakage. It's now being finalized to make sure that what we’ll be doing will not be prematurely leaked to anyone,” Lacierda said.
It may be recalled that President Aquino had ordered an investigation as to how his 2010 SONA speech was allegedly leaked to a television network who posted a copy in its Facebook account shortly after he delivered it in the House of Representatives in July 2010. (PNA)
