Ginawa ni Andanar ang pahayag sa nakaraang inagurasyon ng tanggapan ng Presidential Task Force on Media Security (PTFOMS) sa 2nd floor, West Wing, William J. Shaw Building, San Rafael, Malacañang Complex, San Miguel, Manila.

Si Andanar ay co-chairman din ng PTFOMS kasama ni Justice Sec. Vitaliano Aguirre.

Sinabi ni Sec. Andanar na ang pagtatatag ng PTFOMS na pinamumunuan ni Executive Director Usec. Joel Egco ay patunay lamang sa hangarin ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte na mabigyang proteksyon ang mga mamamahayag sa bansa.

Kasabay nito, inianunsyo ni Andanar ang programang pabahay para sa mga mamahayag.

Nakipag-ugnayan na raw ang kanyang kanyang tanggapan sa National Housing Authority (NHA) para sa nasabing programa.

Alam daw nila ang sitwasyon ng maraming mamamahayag na wala pang sariling bahay at nagbubuwis ng buhay sa kanilang trabaho.

Maliban sa pabahay, inaayos na rin daw ng Presidential Communications Operations Office ang kasunduan sa iba’t ibang mga pagamutan sa buong bansa para sa medical assistance sa mga mamahayag.

HAVING extramarital affairs could land you in jail.

That was what an Egyptian woman living in Dubai found out after she was recently jailed and deported after having an extramarital affair with a Palestinian.

The authorities discovered the affair after the woman, who recently gave birth to a stillborn child in a local hospital, failed to provide a marriage certificate to verify the father’s identity.  

The Palestinian, who apparently abandoned the woman after she got pregnant last year, was later apprehended by Dubai police and charged with having consensual sex without being married along with the woman.

The woman later claimed that she and the man were married according to customs in her country and that he paid for her medical checkups, but failed to provide documents to substantiate her claims.

The Palestinian, meanwhile, argued that he did not have sex with the woman and that she had fabricated the allegations to cover up for her flatmate, who was the person with whom she had unmarried sex and got pregnant.

The Dubai court sentenced the couple to a month in jail, followed by deportation.
