MANILA, Philippines - President Aquino reiterated Thursday his support for the passage of the Freedom of Information (FOI) Bill, recalling that the Palace has already submitted its version to Congress.

“We are in full support of that particular measure with the amendments that we proposed,” Aquino told reporters.

As to its status, he said he has not yet asked the Presidential Legislative Liaison Office (PLLO), saying he has “a lot of other things” to attend to, including the situation in Scarborough Shoal.
