- An online post claimed that a new law waived the fees of getting government documents
- The claim added that the law covers “everyone”
- However, it has been reported that the claim is false
A social media post has been shared multiple times after claiming that a new law in the Philippines waives the fees of getting government documents for “everyone.”
However, KAMI learned that the claim is false.
In a report by French news agency Agence France-Presse, the social media post had a caption that read: “Good news sa lahat. Wow galing naman ni Pres. Du30. Ayan na sa mga mahilig sa libre.”
However, the law stated that only first-time job seekers or fresh graduates will be charged for free when they get government documents needed for their employment and not "everyone."
The RA 11261 stated that government agencies “should not collect” any fees for first-time job seekers. However, the waiver could only be used once.
