MANILA, Feb. 3, 2016— Who did it?
There are still no clues but Radio Veritas is looking into the hacking of its public Facebook page that had been taken down at the height of a global church event in Cebu City.
Fr. Anton Pascual, RV president, said the page was deleted on Jan. 29, the fifth to the last day of the 51st International Eucharistic Congress (IEC).
He said the page, which already has more than 41,000 “likes”, was serving as Catholic netizens’ source of information, catechesis, and devotional materials.
Even Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle lamented the hacking incident.
“How sad. How could they do that?” Tagle said in Filipino.
In the meantime, Radio Veritas will be using its other Facebook page, “Veritas846.ph” for all its postings and updates.
The Catholic radio management also placed measures to prevent the hacking incident from happening again. (CBCP News)
