Blogger Jover Laurio steals info, breaks Australian Privacy Laws and blackmails fellow bloggers

Self-proclaimed thought leader of the Philippine Opposition and “popular” Filipino blogger Jover Laurio is now under the knife of her own actions. The blogger stole contact information and records from the call center that she used to work, whom serves as the Australian incumbent telecommunications company Telstra.

In addition to the act of violating the privacy laws of Australia, Laurio also used this information to blackmail another blogger who’s political beliefs does not align with hers.

The blackmailed blogger stated that,

“I recall that some of the threats she and her cohorts addressed to me made reference to telephone bills.”

The Australian Privacy Principle (APP) 6 of the Australian Privacy Act of 1988 prohibits the disclosure of private information for purposes other than what it was intended to be purposed, this is of course unless the owner of this private information permits to. The APP 8 states that despite being an overseas recipient, Laurio may be facing liabilities once proven that she in fact stole and blackmailed the blogger through distribution of his private information

The victim pleads for an investigation by the Telstra, for it is his right and it will prove whether or not Laurio did illegally obtain and distributed private information which she used to blackmail the blogger in social media.

Laurio the “Hero”?
Focusing on Laurio, the Philippine Opposition indirectly sees Laurio as a hypocritical “hero” of the fight against the so called “tyrannical” Philippine government. Proof of this hypocrisy can be found in the critical evaluation that Katrina Stuart-Santiago gave to Laurio’s blog called the Pinoy Ako Blog (PAB).

In the evaluation, Stuart-Santiago took note of Laurio’s intellectual dishonesty, which is exhibited in the work. She also stated that that,

“anyone who even spends time reading through Laurio’s site would find that she employs exactly the same tools, the same tone, the same kabastusan [crassness] that we find offensive in the DDS microblogs and fake news-propaganda sites.”

Laurio’s Intellectual Dishonesty

Dwelling into Laurio’s intellectual dishonesty and her magical blog of malice and crassness from unknown sources, Laurio’s strategy at degrading what she opposes to be is no different from what the Opposed does to the Opposition. Using words like “Sana hindi po ito totoo…” or “Kung mali ako…” is no different to Asec Mocha Uson’s use of the term “allegedly” when referring to baseless accusations that lead to propaganda of whichever side. And unlike RJ Nieto, Laurio also doesn’t hyperlink sources. She also plagiarizes content of other Facebook pages, while reaping all the positivity from “her work”.

Sadly, this fake hero is being featured by the New York Times, who’s fooled by tempting juiciness story of Laurio’s story, a blogger whose credibility is lower than that of a copy-pasting high school student.
