    The Senate has adopted a resolution expressing its concurrence to the ratification of an international agreement that facilitates multilateral cooperation and enhanced collective capability to suppress cybercrime.

    According to Senate Resolution Number 616 sponsored by Sen. Loren Legarda, the Convention on Cybercrime, signed in Budapest, Hungary on November 23, 2001 and signed by Pres. Rodrigo Duterte on December 9, 2016, “remains the sole binding international legal mechanism adopted by countries to address the threats posed by cybercrime”.

    Sen. Loren Legarda, chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, said the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime aims to address the threats posed by cybercrime and facilitates multilateral cooperation and enhanced collective capability to suppress cybercrime.

    “Since cybercrime is borderless, simultaneous and persistent, cooperation, coordination, and collaboration with other countries is therefore vital,” Legarda said.

    I have come to greatly admire the leadership of Senator Loren Legarda.

    Some of the legislation that she has not only introduced but enacted, are now being regarded as model for many other countries around the world. She has been a passionate advocate for many years and she is now in a position of great authority and influence in the Senate. I meet with a lot of leaders around the world who deal with the climate issue. It really is a genuine pleasure to work with Senator Legarda.

    Senator Loren, Thank you so much for gracing Ani ng Dangal with your inspiring presence. The keynote message that you gave was very empowering to the artists. No other senator or high government official before you had understood how much culture, especially the arts, can contribute to a nation’s development. Best regards!

    — Chairman Jun De Leon, National Commission for Culture and the Arts
