The Philippine Daily Inquirer (PDI) has asked the head of the Presidential Task Force on Media Security to investigate the online attack on Inquirer Mindanao reporter Julie Alipala following the publication of her stories about the killing of seven Tausug men by the military.

Jose Ma. Nolasco, executive editor of PDI, on Wednesday, wrote Undersecretary Joel Sy Egco, urging him to look into a social media page which posts invited hate messages and death threats against Alipala.


Nolasco asked Egco to unmask the people behind the social media page as the PDI expressed “grave concern” over the online assault on its reporter.
