The project contract was awarded, had its funding blocked by the Senate and that block subsequently vetoed by the president.

In this note, based on our own research, we examine the following topics:

  • Why the dispute
  • How bidders were required to be Chinese-state-owned
  • How the PRC China is financing almost all of the project
  • Contract signing witnessed by Rodrigo Duterte and Xi Jinping
  • How the signed contract was blocked and unblocked
  • How there are many contracts and a lot of financing coming from the PRC
  • What the national police found in their investigation
  • How Huawei bid, but did not win
  • What are the specifics of the planned Safe Philippines Project
  • What Huawei's surveillance history is with the Philippines

Why do they keep calling it a, " closed-circuit television system?" It is not a closed-circuit system anymore. (and undoubtedly wide open to attack for that matter)!

anyone with a cognitively functioning brain - who isn't subjugated to the PRC - knows that Huawei is a Potemkin shareholder register.

to argue otherwise is to ignore reality.

PRISM, Facts speak louder than words, no matter google, facebook or Apple, most of the American giant companies are the accomplices for American goverment to monitoring the world.
