1 CCTV inside dormitory rooms on Fri Nov 30, 2012 9:01 am


Arresto Menor
Itatanong ko lang po, inside a dormitory room that also doubles as a changing room and locker room, legal po ba ang paglagay ng CCTV? I understand the need for them to prevent crimem, at nakakatulong nga talaga sa prevention of theft, but I think they violate the following as per House Bill 6672 (CCTV Act of 2012):

Section 4 - Notice of Surveillance

Wala pong written notice na under CCTV ang area.

Section 5 - Prohibited Surveillance

As the rooms double up as changing rooms, I do not think it is reasonable for the rooms to have CCTV cameras installed.

Please enlighten me regarding this matter.

you can't invoke a house bill because that isn't a law yet.

write a letter to the management of the dormitory. you can elevate it to the bgy or even the courts

Ah I see, thanks po. What laws can we refer to with regards to privacy? I feel na intrusive po kasi ang presence ng CCTV sa loob ng kwarto ng dormitory.

It is the the constitution that provides privacy.

Section 3.

The privacy of communication and correspondence shall be inviolable except upon lawful order of the court, or when public safety or order requires otherwise, as prescribed by law.

Any evidence obtained in violation of this or the preceding section shall be inadmissible for any purpose in any proceeding.

It is the privacy of communication of the parties that are protected.
