I would like to obtain a copy of a memorandum of Atty. John Rio. A Bautista, OIC-Director II, Legal Research Docket and Enforcement Branch, addressed to the Honorable POEA Administrator, dated 20 August 2020.

The POEA previously stated "Excepted by the Data Privacy Law.", if this is still the case, please cite the provision of the "Data Privacy Law" that prevents this document from being disclosed. There is no "Data Privacy Law" in the Philippines, there is a "Data Privacy Act" but no "Data Privacy Law" so please clarify the legal basis for withholding this document.
