Whistleblower Sandra Cam seeks SC help over ‘surveillance’ activities

By |


MANILA, Philippines – A whistleblower sought the help of the Supreme Court Thursday, claiming she was the alleged subject of surveillance/reconnaissance activities after revealing that she has a list of ranking government officials who benefitted from the pork barrel scam.

In her petition for writ of habeas data, Sandra Cam urged the high court to order Agrarian Reform Secretary Alex Almario to explain why he made so many attempts to meet her from April 30 to May 3, 2014.

Sandra Cam said a source gave her a list containing 82 congressmen and 16 senators who benefitted from the pork scam. Included in the 16 senators were Juan Ponce-Enrile, Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada and Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., three others whose terms have expired and 10 incumbent senators.
